Benchmark Litigation has recognized Stoll Keenon Ogden as a Leading Litigation Firm in Kentucky. Three of the firm’s attorneys, Sam Hinkle, Doug Ballantine and Perry Bentley, were also recognized as “Local Litigation Stars.” Stoll Keenon Ogden debuted in Benchmark Litigation last year as a highly recommended firm in the 2009 rankings.
According to the publisher, Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading US trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. Focused exclusively on the US litigation market, the publication’s rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. Supplementary firm information is also submitted in the form of a questionnaire. The guide’s “local litigation stars” reflect lawyers who are recommended by peers and clients to have established consistent reputations as trial attorneys, while “future stars” are those litigators who are highlighted as likely to be become “local litigation stars” in coming editions. Benchmark’s independent research is conducted annually between February and June.
