July 2021 – Kendall Brill & Kelly Partner Patrick J. Somers was named to this year’s Benchmark Litigation 40 & Under Hot List, which recognizes the top young legal talent under age 40 across the U.S. and Canada. This is the second year in a row that Mr. Somers has received this honor.

As the only annual international guide devoted to recognizing the world’s leading litigators and litigation firms, Benchmark Litigation works to identify law firm partners who represent “the top young talent in their respective litigation communities in the US & Canada.”

It says that the lawyers it recognizes are “able to adapt to rapidly changing times in addition to juggling their flourishing careers and personal lives, and all while staying on top of their industry.”

Mr. Somers was also named to Benchmark Litigation’s 40 & Under Hot List in 2020. He also has been named a Rising Star by Law360 and honored as one of California’s top 40 attorneys under the age of 40 by the Daily Journal in 2019 as a result of his significant victories for high-profile entertainment, media, corporate, and individual clients.
