awards & recognition

Our clients are Fortune 500 companies and top performers in their industries; they can choose to retain any law firm they like, but they choose to partner with us. We return our clients’ trust with the highest quality of work, responsive service, and an unwavering commitment to winning.

As a result, Willenken continues to receive national recognition as one of the most elite litigation firms in the country. Our firm has been recognized by leading independent legal publications including Benchmark Litigation, The American Lawyer, and Corporate Counsel

We don’t practice law in order to win awards and accolades, of course. But these awards do attest to the skill of our attorneys and their ability to obtain winning outcomes. Most importantly, Willenken is recognized as a leader in complex commercial litigation by our clients, who we will always be honored to serve.

“The service is top-notch. Every attorney is highly capable, conscientious and responsive.”
