McDermott, which ranked as one of the Top 5 law firms based on the number of nominations it received, won awards in the following three categories: "Massachusetts Law Firm of the Year," "Antitrust Firm of the Year Midwest" and "Regional Impact Case of the Year." One of the top categories of the night, the "Regional Impact Case of the Year" category recognizes cases for having “a profound effect on the business, financial or legislative climate of their home jurisdictions." McDermott received the award for its work securing a complete trial victory for Seikagaku Corporation and Zimmer, Inc. in a high stakes patent infringement suit.
“We would like to extend a hearty congratulations to the lawyers and practices that received such prestigious awards at last night’s Benchmark Litigation Awards Dinner," said Peter J. Sacripanti, co-chair of McDermott Will & Emery. "We are delighted to have been selected by our peers and clients in these three categories and, more importantly, to be recognized as one of the top litigation law firms in the industry today."
“It is an honor to receive such high praise for the Firm’s work across all of these major categories, and we couldn’t be more proud of our lawyers who have contributed to this effort,” added Jeffrey E. Stone, co-chair of McDermott Will & Emery. "McDermott has a long heritage of taking on some of the largest and most complex cases and we are proud to deliver premium results for our clients. These awards are a testament to the tremendous work and ingenuity of our trial partners at all levels and across all regions, industries and practice areas.”
