Winner: Latham & Watkins LLP

Outstanding Contribution (DC)
Beth Wilkinson, Wilkinson Walsh Eskovitz

Stellar advocate Beth Wilkinson has the rare ability to unite market commentators in their appraisal of her as “one of the finest trial lawyers in the country today.” There is no shortage of acclaim for her exceptional handling of industry-defining disputes for international giants such as Bayer and Facebook, which sees her described by one peer as “the go-to person for any trial you’d have.” From top-level prosecutorial experience that drew unique professional recognition from the DOJ to scoring defense verdicts in bellwether product liability trials, she stands out for consistently achieving excellence in all settings. Her recent caseload continues her track record of wins in the toughest of courtrooms, spanning disputes such as sports law, antitrust, IP and consumer fraud, and sits alongside leading expertise in defending both individuals and institutions facing government action. In the words of a fellow advocate, “she is truly extraordinary.”
