July 30, 2012 – Congratulations to Melissa Darigan, chair of the Firm’s Litigation practice, who has been recognized in the inaugural edition of Top 250 Women in Litigation, published by Legal Media Group. The women featured, from throughout the U.S., were selected from their respective states’ roster of local litigation stars in the 2012 edition of peer-reviewed parent publication Benchmark Litigation. “Being recognized among the top 250 litigators across the country is a testament to the highest quality of legal representation that Melissa provides our clients,” said David M. Gilden, Managing Partner.
Top 250 Women in Litigation describes the Rhode Island Litigation market as “…on an uptick due to an increased level of shareholder and business disputes as the economy rebounds from the distress of the past few years—especially given Providence’s growing role as a regional financial center. Firms are continuing also to see steady work in the product liability, insurance and personal injury areas.”
It goes on to say “Peers widely consider Melissa Darigan …as among Rhode Island’s top litigators. She regularly handles general commercial, insurance and financial services matters, as well as class action defense.”
