Steve Sumner has been named among America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators, a list that identifies the nation’s most exceptional trial lawyers for high stakes legal matters. In 2018, less than 0.5% percent of active attorneys in the United States were selected for inclusion.
Selection to America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators is by invitation only and is reserved for the nation’s most notable trial attorneys. To be considered, an attorney must have litigated (for either plaintiff or defendant) a matter (1) with at least $2,000,000 in alleged damages at stake or (2) with the fate of a business worth at least $2,000,000 at stake (i.e. bet-the-company litigation valued in excess of $2,000,000). Candidates that meet these criteria must then pass through a multi-phase screening process that evaluates their professional experience, litigation experience, significant case results, representative high stakes matters, peer reputation, and community impact.
