Chambers Once Again Recognizes Wilkinson Stekloff Among Trial Elite, Honors Beth Wilkinson as Outstanding Individual

In recognition of Wilkinson Stekloff’s work on some of the most consequential trials across the antitrust, product liability, and sports landscape, legal industry research outlet Chambers and Partners has ranked the firm and its attorneys among the trial elite in their recently released 2024 guide for the U.S. and honored Founding Partner Beth Wilkinson with its national Outstanding Individual award.

Across all types of high-stakes litigation, 40-lawyer firm Wilkinson Stekloff has delivered a slate of client victories that would be the envy of far larger firms, trying over 20 cases to verdict since 2016 and winning the vast majority. In recognition of these results, Chambers has maintained the firm’s position as one of the country’s most highly sought litigation boutiques, ranking it in the District of Columbia for General Commercial Litigation — The Elite (Band 2) and Antitrust (Band 5), and nationwide for Product Liability & Mass Torts — The Elite (Band 4), and Sports Law (Band 4).

Chambers also recognized the achievements of four Wilkinson Stekloff partners:

In addition to the firm’s exceptional results in the 2024 guide, Beth has been selected for the national Outstanding Individual award, which will be presented to her at the Chambers U.S. Awards ceremony on June 13, 2024. This recognition honors an attorney practicing in any discipline from any jurisdiction in the United States who has made a notable contribution to the legal profession. Described to Chambers as “one of the best litigators of our time,” Beth has served as lead counsel in over 50 jury trials, developing an unrivaled record of victories in federal and state courts throughout the country. She most recently served as lead trial counsel for Microsoft in the FTC’s challenge to Microsoft’s $68.7 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard — the second-largest merger trial in American history and the biggest involving a technology company.

The leading trial litigation boutique in the country, Wilkinson Stekloff continues to demonstrate a depth of talent and dexterity of skill unmatched by firms of any size.
