MOBILE, Ala. – In its 2016 rankings of America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys, Benchmark Litigation named Cunningham Bounds as one of Alabama’s leading law firms. One of only 10 firms in Alabama chosen, Benchmark awarded Cunningham Bounds a top ranking of “Highly Recommended – Local Litigation Firms.” The firm was recognized in the following practice areas: personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice, general commercial, insurance, and bankruptcy litigation.
According to Benchmark editors, the Benchmark Litigation rankings stem from the culmination of a six-month research period where researchers conducted extensive interviews with litigators and their clients, while examining the casework handled by law firms. Those making the statewide list are considered dominant in their areas, and were recommended as reputable and effective litigators by both clients and peers. Law firms in each local market were divided into “highly recommended” and “recommended” categories. All listed firms were consistently mentioned by peers and clients, but the “highly recommended” firms received the most mentions, and were held as dominant in their particular jurisdiction.
In addition to Cunningham Bounds’ firm ranking, seven of its attorneys were named “Local Litigation Stars” in this year’s guide: Greg B. Breedlove, Joseph M. “Buddy” Brown, Jr., Toby D. Brown, David S. Cain, Jr., Robert T. Cunningham, George W. “Skip” Finkbohner, III, and Steve Olen. Robert L. Mitchell was ranked in Benchmark’s 2016 list of “Future Stars.”
The list of “Local Litigation Stars” for each state reflects only those individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers. The list of “Future Stars” in each state reflects those partners who were consistently referenced by peers and clients as litigators who are likely to be become “Local Litigation Stars.”
