Atkinson, Conway & Gagnon has been selected for inclusion in the 2008 edition of America’s Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys. Those firms selected are identified by Benchmark’s research team, which conducts extensive face-to-face and telephone interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel across the country in the preceding 12-month period. The purpose of the ranking is to identify those firms and attorneys best able to handle complex litigation matters.
The research results for law firm selection are broken down into “highly recommended” and “recommended” categories. All listed firms were consistently mentioned by peers and clients, but the “highly recommended” firms received the most mentions, and were held up as being definitively dominant in their particular jurisdiction. Atkinson, Conway & Gagnon, Inc., was identified as “highly recommended” in this ranking, and was one of only 3 law firms selected from Alaska.
The rankings also include identification of “local litigation stars” for each state, reflecting only those individuals who were recommended consistently as incontrovertible stars by clients and peers. Two of the law firm’s partners, Richard E. Vollertsen and Patrick B. Gilmore, were identified in this ranking as “local litigation stars”.
