Buzz Wood Named Among America’s Top 100 Bet-the-Company Litigators®
Blank Rome Partner Buzz Wood has been named to America’s Top 100 Bet-the-Company Litigators, an annual directory that recognizes the nation’s most exceptional trial attorneys in high stakes business litigation matters. Buzz is recognized in this year’s Top 100 Bet-the-Company Litigators® along with Partner Michelle Gervais, who joined the directory earlier this year.
To be considered for selection to America’s Top 100 Bet-the-Company Litigators®, an attorney must have litigated (for either plaintiff or defendant) a matter with the fate of a business worth at least two million dollars at stake. Thereafter, candidates are carefully screened through comprehensive advanced data analytics based on a broad array of criteria, including the candidate’s professional experience, litigation experience, significant business litigation case results, representative bet-the-company matters, peer reputation, and community impact in order to rank the candidates throughout the state. With these standards, less than one-half percent of active attorneys in the United States receive the honor each year, making this honor the most exclusive and elite level of high stakes business litigators in the community.
At Blank Rome, Buzz serves as chair of the Firm’s Wilmington office. He has spent his career helping clients in a wide variety of litigation matters, including a national practice handling complex business disputes, representing clients in Delaware shareholder and corporate litigation maters, and handling class and collective actions, as well as intellectual property and employment matters. Active in his local and legal communities, Buzz recently served on the board and executive committee for the Foundation for Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Easttown Township Zoning Hearing Board, and has also served as a board member of the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, co-chair of the Discrimination and Disability Law Subcommittee of the Federalist Society’s national Labor and Employment Law Practice Group, and as co-chair for the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Appellate Courts Committee.
