NEW YORK, NY, September 25, 2019 – Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP is delighted to announce that the firm has been named as one of the “Top 10 Boutiques” in the country in Benchmark Litigation’s annual lists. The “Top 10 Boutique” law firm annual recognition showcases the leading national litigation boutiques every year. Benchmark has also given the firm its highest rating as a “Highly Recommended Law Firm – New York,” which recognizes NYC firms that are dominant in the field of litigation. Kaplan Hecker & Fink is one of the very few litigation boutiques — and the only firm founded by a woman — to achieve that top designation.

As part of the rating process, one peer lawyer told Benchmark: “Kaplan Hecker has a very strong public interest ethos. Their commitment to diversity and fair play is beyond question. Other firms talk the talk about diversity and equality but this firm walks it, talks it and lives it. They are unwaveringly committed to staring down injustice without blinking, and their work proves that. They are ambitious, feisty and fearless, especially tailor-made for these tumultuous times.”

“They are all pretty young, and are already superstars, so really, if they keep that model and all wind up staying together, the sky is the limit,” added another peer lawyer in an interview with Benchmark.

In distinguishing Kaplan Hecker & Fink as a firm with a national presence, Benchmark noted its expertise in commercial litigation, criminal and enforcement matters, and public interest work. Benchmark previously recognized Roberta Kaplan as one of the Top 10 Women in Litigation, a National Practice Area Star for Commercial Litigation, and one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers. Sean Hecker has been recognized as a National Practice Area Star for White-Collar Crime and Securities, a Local Litigation Star in New York, and as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers. Julie Fink has been named to Benchmark’s 40 and Under Hot List for Commercial Litigation, Employment Litigation, and Product Liability.
