Benchmark Litigation is excited to present the first edition of Top 250 Women in Litigation. The 60-page color guide honors roughly 250 female litigators in all 50 US states, plus the District of Columbia, for their achievements in the field.

Top 250 Women in Litigation opens with a 4,000-word feature outlining the history of women in trial law and issues female trial lawyers face in firm promotion and work-life balance. The article includes insights from leading female litigators featured elsewhere in the book.

For this inaugural edition, the women featured in this edition were selected from their respective states' roster of local litigation stars in the 2012 edition of peer-reviewed parent publication Benchmark Litigation. In jurisdictions where there were few female local litigation stars in relation to the state's population, Top 250 honorees were selected from the local "future stars" category. Each litigator is mentioned in a blurb about litigation trends and their peers.

In addition, Benchmark's editorial staff selected 10 female litigators particularly noted for their career and high-profile case matters to be featured in a special section. Each of these litigators has a dedicated 400-word profile that outlines her accomplishments.

The guide was written in its entirety by Benchmark Litigation deputy editor Anne Szustek and was edited by Benchmark editor Michael Rafalowich.
