BTI Consulting: WTO a "Standout" for Class Action and Product Liability in 2019 Litigation Outlook

11.08.2018

Denver: The BTI Consulting Group has recognized Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell (WTO) as a 2019 national litigation “Standout” in the Class Action and Product Liability categories. BTI is unique among rankings directories because it relies solely on client interviews to inform its listings.

BTI ranks 22 firms in the U.S. as Standouts for class actions and just six firms as Standouts for product liability defense.

According to BTI’s Litigation Outlook 2019, “complex work drives corporate counsel to use law firms they know and trust–and can sell to their leadership with little debate.”

The report places WTO among an elite corps of national litigation firms that “corporate counsel tell (BTI) they are currently turning to for their most pressing litigation needs.”

“We are humbled and affirmed by the recognition our clients have provided for the work we do and the value we add.” said WTO Chairman Michael O’Donnell. “The firms on BTI’s list are the best in the country for class action and product liability defense. We are honored to stand with them.”

The annual BTI Litigation Outlook draws solely on client feedback from independent, in-depth interviews with 350 corporate counsel and leading legal decision makers at the world’s largest companies. The report, according to BTI, has long been considered the gold standard for client insight and perspective on litigation.

Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell lawyers have taken more than 1,100 trials, arbitrations, and appeals to verdict, award, or opinion in 45 states and Washington, D.C., with exceptional results for our clients. Established in 1998, WTO currently numbers more than 100 lawyers in three offices. The firm represents sophisticated clients in high-stakes civil trials, appeals, and related litigation ranging from complex commercial to class actions to multidistrict litigation.
