Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s Eric Burris, a shareholder in the Albuquerque office and co-chair of the firm’s litigation department, was selected as a 2017 Benchmark Litigation Star. Now in its ninth year of publication, Benchmark Litigation is the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys and is the only publication to focus exclusively on U.S. litigation. Burris has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation since 2010.
Eric is known for his presence and success in the courtroom, having represented high-profile clients in the healthcare, financial services, real estate and other sectors for more than 25 years. His wide-ranging commercial litigation practice includes contentious civil matters such as economic torts, intellectual property, employment and labor issues, complex/mass torts, product liability and other personal injury disputes, antitrust claims and class action lawsuits.
The results of Benchmark Litigation are from the culmination of a research period (lasting from four to six months, depending on region) where researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading attorneys and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers. Recommendations are based on interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.
