TAMPA, Fla (PRWEB) March 03, 2014
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig today announced that the Litigation Practice Group of its Tampa office has been named a 2014 “Litigation Department of the Year” by the Daily Business Review/American Lawyer Media. The team was recognized in the real estate category for the results it achieved on behalf of clients, such as Mosaic Fertilizer LLC, the world’s largest vertically integrated phosphate mining company, and LDRV Holdings Corp., the world’s largest recreational vehicle dealership. The team was selected based on evaluation of its litigation results from Jan.1, to Dec. 31, 2013. Client references and the amounts at issue in each case also were considered. The firm will be recognized at an event for all honorees at 6 p.m. March 26 at the Westin Harbour Island Hotel, 725 S. Harbour Island Blvd., in Tampa, Fla.
“We are honored to receive this award, which is a testament to the dedication of our trial lawyers to successfully representing clients in major matters, regionally and nationwide," said David Weinstein, Tampa Managing Shareholder and Chair of the firm’s national Environmental & Toxic Torts Litigation Practice. “There is no higher compliment for a lawyer than to be entrusted by clients with the type of complex, high-stakes cases for which we won this award.”
In 2013, members of the Tampa litigation department tried seven cases in four states with approximately $200 million at issue. These included several multi-week jury trials in state and federal courts and a class action tried to a defense verdict.
