Hueston Hennigan Named “Top 10 Boutique” in U.S. for Fourth Consecutive Year


Hueston Hennigan once again tops the 2020 Benchmark Litigation rankings.

For the fourth consecutive year, Hueston Hennigan earns a spot on the list of “Top Boutiques” in the United States, one of only 12 firms selected nationwide. In addition, we were selected as one of the “Top 20 Trial Firms” in the United States, for the second year in a row.

Hueston Hennigan also earned national – and California – tier 1 rankings in the General Commercial, White Collar, Securities and Entertainment practice areas.

The Benchmark analysis noted Hueston Hennigan’s “rise to a dominant position not only in the Southern California region but also through the state and indeed across the country.” The editors quoted an out-of-state peer citing, “their profile is going national at this point! They have just been massively successful.” With a trial-centric vision and an aggressive business model, “the firm is also [on] a first-call for crisis-based ‘event-driven litigation.’
