Boston, MA. Benchmark, the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys, has given attorneys in Nixon Peabody LLP’s Litigation Department high marks in the fifth annual Benchmark: Litigation and the first edition of Benchmark: Appellate.

Nixon Peabody’s Appellate practice was nationally recognized as one of the leading appellate firms for both the First and Second circuits.

The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit is a federal court with appellate jurisdiction over the district courts in the following districts: Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, and Rhode Island. The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit comprises the states of Connecticut, New York, and Vermont, and the court has appellate jurisdiction over the district courts in the following districts: Connecticut; the Eastern, Northern, Southern, and Western districts of New York; and Vermont.

In addition to the firm’s Appellate recognition, Nixon Peabody was recognized as a recommended litigation firm in multiple states with eleven Nixon Peabody attorneys recognized as “local litigation stars” and one attorney recognized as a “future star.”
