Benchmark Awards Plaintiff Attorney of the Year to William T. Reid IV

March 2, 2020 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 2, 2020--

Reid Collins capped off a record-setting first quarter with founding partner William T. Reid, IV being named Plaintiff Attorney of the Year by Benchmark Litigation, a leading guide to litigation firms and attorneys. The firm, which celebrated its 10th anniversary late last year, was also named as one of five finalists for Plaintiff Firm of the Year for the second consecutive year, as well as making the shortlist for Texas Firm of the Year.

The accolade caps off an impressive award season for Reid Collins, which was also recognized by the National Law Journal Elite Trial Lawyers Law Firm of the Year in both Commercial Litigation and Bankruptcy last month. The firm beat stiff competition from some of the legal industry’s best-known names to take the accolades, which recognize U.S. based law firms that have performed cutting-edge work on behalf of plaintiffs.

“I’m enormously proud of what our team at Reid Collins has achieved over the past decade, and these recognitions are a testament to our firm’s commitment to relentlessly pursuing justice on behalf of our clients,” said William T. Reid, IV. “Last year was our best year and the first quarter of 2020 has been the most successful in our history by every metric, and we are excited to continue building on this momentum.”

Since its foundation in 2009, Reid Collins has gone from strength to strength, from notching up tandem jury and bench trial wins in the headline grabbing over $400-million Credit Suisse case to making new law in Merit Management, which restricts the scope of the 546(e) safe harbor defense under Bankruptcy Code. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Reid Collins has quickly developed a national reputation for successfully trying complex commercial and financial cases, and currently boasts a docket of several billion dollars.
