Law Firm Received Highly Recommended Rating in New Benchmark Publication.

PR9.NET October 31, 2007 - CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Helms Mulliss Wicker, PLLC, (HMW) announced today that it won the top ranking, "Highly Recommended," in the debut issue of Benchmark: Litigation, The Definitive Guide to America's Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys.

HMW received the top ranking as a result of the firm's success in several recent engagements in which it represented clients including Bank of America, BASF, and SAS Software in commercial or trade secrets litigation. The litigation group's work on the Lowe's Motor Speedway pedestrian bridge collapse litigation and Duke University Health System's surgical sterilization litigation was also recognized.

Benchmark: Litigation also cited five members of the firm's litigation group for excellence. Peter J. Covington, firm chairman, Douglas W. Ey, Jr., litigation practice area leader, members Jonathan E. Buchan, Jr. and L.D. Simmons II and E. Osborne "Ozzie" Ayscue Jr., the firm's senior trial lawyer, were highlighted in the review.

"We are honored that a respected publisher of international legal journals highly recommends our firm," said Covington. "This recognizes our litigation group's experience and excellence, which allow us to address critical client needs and exceed client expectations."

Benchmark: Litigation drew on Legal Media Group's extensive database of contacts, conducting extensive face-to-face interviews with leading legal professionals, in-house counsel, judges and business owners. To be listed in Benchmark: Litigation, a firm needed to be consistently mentioned by peers and clients. To achieve the ranking of "Highly Recommended," a firm needed to be mentioned most often and defined as being definitively dominant in their particular jurisdiction.
