McCarthy and Tountas Named to Benchmark Litigation’s 2024 Edition of Litigation Stars

Two Smith Haughey attorneys – E. Thomas McCarthy, Jr. and D. Adam Tountas – have been selected to Benchmark Litigation’s 2024 list of Litigation Stars for the 10th consecutive year. Adam is recognized for his work in appellate and commercial litigation; Tom is recognized for commercial litigation. They first appeared in the 2015 edition of Benchmark Litigation’s Litigation Stars.

Benchmark Litigation is the premier guide to the world’s leading litigation law firms and lawyers and defines litigation stars as “lawyers who are highly regarded by their peers and possess a strong case record and positive client feedback.” Researchers interview litigators, dispute resolution specialists, and their clients to identify leading litigators and firms. To select the final honorees, they examine attorneys’ casework, evaluate client feedback, and solicit professional input from peers and practitioners who share jurisdiction or practice areas.
