On Thursday, February 16, Sills Cummis & Gross was named “New Jersey Litigation Firm of the Year” for 2017 by Benchmark Litigation. The fifth annual Benchmark Litigation US awards ceremony was held at the Essex House in New York.  This award comes on the heels of the Firm being named “2016 General Litigation Department of the Year, Mid-sized Firm” by the New Jersey Law Journal in November of 2016.

Sills Cummis & Gross was one of five nominees for this award. The winner was chosen based upon research conducted between March and November 2016.

Buckley, Chair of the Sills Cummis & Gross Litigation Department, stated: “I am so pleased that both of these publications have recognized the high achievements of our Litigation Department over the past year.  I am proud to chair this group of bright, hardworking attorneys who never cease to amaze me.”
