Adam Schiffer Earns Top Honors From Benchmark Litigation
Benchmark Litigation named founding partner Adam Schiffer a “Local Litigation Star” in its 2021 guide to the nation’s leading litigation firms and practitioners. The publication conducts extensive interviews with litigators, dispute resolution specialists, and their clients—as well as rigorous analyses of key cases and industry developments—to identify today’s top talent. According to Benchmark, the “Local Litigation Star” ranking recognizes “individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.”
Adam’s results speak for themselves: he has tried over 40 cases to juries and has arbitrated 25 cases through final hearing. His jury verdicts have been profiled by the National Law Journal, Reuters, Bloomberg, CNBC, and the Houston Chronicle, among others. A formidable courtroom opponent, Adam is regularly asked to take over complex, hard-to-win cases on the eve of trial. In the past 10 years, he has recovered more than $240 million for his plaintiff clients in litigation, domestic arbitrations, and international arbitrations. On the defense side, he has handled matters ranging from bet-the-company cases to individual claims such as corporate malfeasance, securities fraud, and breaches of fiduciary duty.
