August 2020 – Kendall Brill & Kelly partner Patrick J. Somers was named to this year’s Benchmark Litigation 40 & Under Hot List, which recognizes the most notable law firm partners age 40 and younger across the U.S. and Canada. Benchmark Litigation is the only annual international guide devoted to recognizing the world’s leading litigators and litigation firms.

Each year, Benchmark Litigation says its team sets out to find law firm partners who stand out among the top young talent in their respective litigation communities. The publication said it selected this year’s list based on nominees’ ability to “frequently handle major cases – some of which are high-stakes or precedent-setting.”

Mr. Somers was previously named a Rising Star by Law360 and one of California’s top 40 attorneys under the age of 40 by the Daily Journal.  He earned these honors in 2019 because of his significant victories for high-profile entertainment, media, corporate, and individual clients.
