Seventeen Baker & Daniels LLP partners are being recognized by Benchmark Litigation 2012, the definitive guide to America's leading law firms and attorneys. Also, Baker & Daniels has been named a "highly recommended" law firm in Indiana and a "recommended" law firm in Illinois by the publication.
Baker & Daniels has received "highly recommended" in Indiana during all five annual editions of Benchmark Litigation, the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the U.S. It was the first "recommended" ranking in Illinois since Baker & Daniels opened a Chicago office in mid-2008.
In the first-ever appellate version of Benchmark Litigation, Baker & Daniels was ranked as a "highly recommended" firm for the Seventh Circuit-Indiana.

Benchmark Litigation's results are the culmination of a six-month research period that allows the publication's researchers to conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients. During these interviews, researchers examine recent casework handled by the firms and ask sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their state or national practice areas.
Benchmark Litigation provides general counsel with a detailed analysis of the best commercial and financial litigators in the U.S. That makes the publication a one-stop shop for in-house counsel and an effective tool when seeking an individual expert in a particular field, a national powerhouse with exceptional bench strength or a local leader in an unfamiliar jurisdiction.
The U.S.-based publication operates from the New York offices of Institutional Investor and Euromoney's Legal Media Group. For more information about Benchmark Litigation, visit www.benchmarklitigation.com.
