Herman, Herman & Katz L.L.C. has been named one of the "Top Tier" recommended law firms in the country by The Legal 500 for plaintiff representation in mass torts and class actions, specifically pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The Legal 500 is an independent guide in which firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit, and excerpts from the peer-submitted reviews accompany each firms' or attorney's recommendation.
HH&K was recognized in this field for its "talented litigators," who have also played leading roles in several significant pharmaceutical class actions, including Vioxx and Propulsid products liability litigation.
Several of HH&K's attorneys have been listed in the Legal 500's elite "Leading Lawyers" list, the guide to outstanding attorneys nationwide. Partner Russ Herman was listed as an "outstanding trial lawyer and leader in all matters," recognized for his work as a representative for plaintiffs in Mass Torts and Class Actions dealing with pharmaceutical and medical device litigation.
"Highly skilled" and "very professional" attorney Leonard Davis was recognized in the same field, as were attorney Stephen J. Herman and of counsel Joseph Kott, M.D.
The Legal 500 Series, which has been published for the past 25 years, is widely acknowledged as the world's largest legal referral guide. In 2011, more than 180,000 in-house counsel and lawyers were surveyed and interviewed globally.
