USA Ranking: Tier 1

The "enormously talented" David Bernick of Kirkland & Ellis LLP is described as "one of the finest advocates in the land" and "wonderful in court — like a steamroller." He has extensive experience in complex commercial litigation, particularly in product liability work. He recently won a favourable settlement on behalf of client Dow Chemical in litigation arising out of a covert effort by top executives to take over the company.
