New Jersey Law Journal Professional Excellence

Each year Litigation Departments of the Year draws one of the most enthusiastic responses of all the Law Journal’s Professional Excellence categories. Even this year, as we shifted our focus toward New Jersey’s midsize and smaller firms, the response was strong, as were the submissions. The below litigation groups in our judgment went beyond providing good counsel to clients—they, in many cases, ferried them through the most significant disputes, handled matters in creative ways, litigated at the trial and appellate levels, or moved the law forward. Sometimes they accomplished these things all at once.

We congratulate the winners:
