MINNEAPOLIS (November 2011) - Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. is pleased to announce it has again ranked prominently in the annual Benchmark Litigation survey of in-house counsel and private practice lawyers by the Legal Media Group.

Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading US trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. Focused exclusively on the US litigation market, the publication's rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. Supplementary firm information is also submitted in the form of a questionnaire. The guide's "local litigation stars" reflect lawyers who are recommended by peers and clients to have established consistent reputations as trial attorneys, while "future stars" are those litigators who are highlighted as likely to be become "local litigation stars" in coming editions. Benchmark's independent research is conducted annually between January and June.
