Benchmark Litigation declares: Hueston Hennigan’s “mission of putting a premium on trial work, a mission that has been fulfilled with rapid momentum…”

Hueston Hennigan once again tops the Benchmark Litigation rankings, earning a spot on the coveted list of “Top Boutiques” and “Top 20 Trial Firms” in the United States.

Benchmark analysis noted Hueston Hennigan is on “an ascent that can only be described as astonishing” … “is massively successful” … “with a client base [that] is remarkably diverse … with very little repeat business and virtually no ‘routine’ cases.”

“Hueston Hennigan doesn’t do the ‘cookie-cutter.’ They do really cool, cutting-edge work,” declared a peer, who goes on to confide, “I admit it makes me jealous, and I’m sure I’m not alone!”

Benchmark recognized partners, John Hueston and Moez Kaba, as two of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the Country and two of the Top 20 Trial Lawyers in California.

John Hueston was acclaimed as “a trial trailblazer who has carved himself an enviable position even among others in the elite trial lawyer circuit.” “Hueston’s proven activity as lead counsel on a number of high-level appointments more than supports this near-unanimous acclaim.”

Moez Kaba, lauded as “accomplished,” “impressive” and “the youngest appointee to this prestigious list by some distance,” was praised as having “staked himself a position as another of the firm’s lead trial counsel on some of the firm’s most high-stakes disputes.” 

Benchmark also commended Douglas Dixon for “generating a rising level of acclaim, with the work to support the accolades.” And Allison Libeu was hailed as an attorney “whose profile has been swiftly on the rise,” after winning “the largest-ever U.S. trademark award” (Reuters) for Monster Energy Company against rival beverage company Vital Pharmaceuticals, Inc. along with lead counsels John Hueston and Moez Kaba.
