Partner Amelia Sargent is recognized by Benchmark Litigation as a leading litigation attorney in its annual 40 & Under Hot List. Benchmark Litigation commemorates the most notable up-and-coming litigation attorneys in the United States.
The attorneys named to the exclusive 40 & Under Hot List have proven their eligibility as individuals at the partner level of their firms at the age of 40 or younger. The selected attorneys have all also had a lead role in some of their firm’s most noteworthy recent cases and have earned praise from clients and peers regarding the quality of their work. Benchmark Litigation’s 40 & Under List features young attorneys “who have established themselves in their respective fields and are set to enjoy bright futures.”
Benchmark Litigation describes Amelia as “highly-regarded for incorporating her unique background into her complex commercial practice. Sargent, who also holds a Ph.D and teaches at the University of California, Hastings College of Law, assists clients in a variety of industries, with a special focus on art, entertainment, and other cultural matters. Among her most notable cases, Sargent represented as amici curiae two university professors before the United States Supreme Court in high-profile litigation involving Holocaust-era assets.”
Attorneys named to the 2021 40 & Under Hot List were chosen through several phases of research, including:
- Review of recent case work;
- Peer review in which Benchmark Litigation considers how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them; and
- Consideration of client feedback on their performances.
