New York, NY – November 19, 2015 – ALM’s The National Law Journal announced today the induction of five prominent plaintiffs attorneys to its Elite Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame. The publisher awards will be presented to each inductee at the 2015 Elite Trial Lawyers Awards on December 8 at the Plaza Hotel in New York.

This year’s inductees are: Thomas Girardi of Girardi Keese; David Sanford of Sanford Heisler Kimpel; Robert Lieff of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein; Brian Panish of Panish Shea & Boyle; and Russ Herman of Herman Herman & Katz.

“We are excited to recognize these outstanding plaintiff advocates,” said Kenneth Gary, vice president and group publisher. “Each of these attorneys have achieved great heights in the practice of law and in generating outstanding results for their clients. This year’s Elite Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame is a strong class for sure.”

Some 300 guests are expected to gather at The Plaza hotel next month to recognize the law firms and lawyers who secured places on this year’s Hall of Fame list, determined by the publisher, along with lawyers and law firms recognized in two reports by the National Law Journal’s editorial staff: the 35 Elite Trial Lawyer Litigation Category Finalists and the Winning Litigators. Business anchor, New York Times best selling author and financial expert Nicole Lapin will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
