Benchmark Litigation has named partners Lisa Blatt and Heidi Hubbard to its list of the “Top 10 Female Litigators” in the United States for 2023. Williams & Connolly is the only firm with more than one honoree on this list. This is the third year in a row that Lisa Blatt has been recognized on this list and Heidi Hubbard’s fourth time being recognized. According to the publisher, the list is the definitive guide to the country’s most distinguished women in litigation, and the selected individuals are chosen based on case wins, peer reviews, and client feedback.
Lisa has argued 46 cases before the United States Supreme Court, prevailing in 41, an 89%-win rate.* Lisa was named “Litigator of the Year” in 2021 by The American Lawyer and in 2023, Chambers USA named her an Appellate “Star Individual,” an honor she’s received for last three years. Lisa’s industry-influencing victories have helped shape the legal landscape in areas as diverse as trademark, copyright, administrative law, product liability, environmental law, and commercial law. Benchmark Litigation reports that clients and peers say she “is a nationally revered ‘superstar’ of the appellate bar” and “she can do any kind of appeal. Antitrust, pharmaceutical work, she even did the [DC-based NFL team] Redskins case.”
Heidi tries cases in state and federal courts, and before arbitrators, throughout the country. She is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and she has been named among the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” in America (Benchmark Litigation 2015-2023). Earlier this year, Heidi was recognized with four Band 1 Rankings by Chambers USA and Chambers Global. Benchmark Litigation reports that clients and peers say Heidi is “one of the firm’s most revered and popular true trial lawyers” and highlights her recent antitrust reverse-payment jury trial win on behalf of Endo Pharmaceuticals—a type of case that is “so complicated and [doesn’t] go to trial very often.”
