The Sills Cummis & Gross Commercial Litigation Department was presented with the Finalist Award by  the New Jersey Law Journal  for Commercial Litigation at the Litigation Department of the Year Awards Dinner at the Brook Lake Country Club in Florham Park on Thursday, June 19.  This is the second annual list of leading litigation departments “based on their recipes for success.” According to the editor, “participation among firms was more enthusiastic, and consequently, competition was keener.”  As stated in the NJLJ, “The Firm has a reputation for success in high-stakes litigation.””

Joseph L. Buckley, Chair of the Litigation Department, accepted the award on behalf of the Firm and his Department.  He thanked his Co-chairs, Richard H. Epstein, who also serves as General Counsel to the Firm, Beth S. Rose, Chair of the Product Liability Practice Group, and Anthony Argiropoulos who focuses on Health Care Litigation.  He also thanked Lawrence S. Horn, Chair of the Tax and Business Crimes Practice Groups, Peter G. Verniero, Chair of the Appellate Practice Group, former Associate Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court and New Jersey Attorney General, Jeffrey J. Greenbaum, Chair of the Class Action Practice Group and Mark S. Olinsky, who will be sworn in as President of the Association of the Federal Bar of New Jersey in June of 2016.  He also thanked all of the Members of the Litigation Department who helped to make this award possible.  The Firm has previously been recognized in numerous publications such as Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyer (litigation department listed in Band 1 in 2014), Benchmark Litigation - The Definitive Guide to America’s Leading Litigation Firms & Attorneys (received the top ranking as one of the “highly recommended” New Jersey litigation firms in the 2014 edition), Best Lawyers in America, and New Jersey Super Lawyers.

The Sills Cummis & Gross Litigation Department consists of over 60 attorneys representing multinational corporations, financial institutions and government bodies, often in complex and important matters.  The litigation attorneys are active in pre-trial, trial and appellate matters in federal and state courts, as well as administrative litigation, grand jury investigations and arbitrations.  The Firm prides itself on advancing its client’s strategic business objectives, while at the same time striving to identify the key factual and legal issues that determine the final outcome of the litigation, always staffing matters intelligently and leanly.
