HOUSTON – Houston-based trial lawyer Ashish Mahendru is being honored among the best plaintiff financial lawyers in the country following his repeat selection to the prestigious Lawdragon 500. The annual guide recognizes the best of the best in a range of practice areas and is considered one of the most elite professional distinctions for attorneys. Mr. Mahendru made the 2022 list for his exceptional performance in commercial disputes and whistleblower litigation.
Lawdragon honors are based on a rigorous selection process that combines “independent journalistic research with a robust, open nomination process. Final candidates are vetted by peers and competitors before the 500 are selected.” In addition to Lawdragon, Mr. Mahendru has been recognized among the top-rated litigators by Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers, two of the other leading guides to the legal profession.
“Our firm is a team of three that operates like a much larger law firm,” said Mr. Mahendru. “We are aggressive and no-nonsense, and opposing counsel know that we are not to be taken lightly. I’m proud to be listed among such an amazing group of attorneys, but it’s our team approach that really makes it all possible.”
Other categories of practice recognized by Lawdragon for excellence include antitrust, class actions, securities fraud, business torts and disputes, intellectual property, and data privacy claims. Final selections are made based on factors including courtroom outcomes and verdict and settlement values, as well as reputation with clients and the legal community.
