WASHINGTON — Wilkinson Walsh founding partner Beth Wilkinson was recognized by Chambers and Partners with the “Outstanding Contribution to the Legal Profession” award for exceptional achievements in litigation.
Chambers wrote that “there is no shortage of acclaim for [Beth’s] exceptional handling of industry-defining disputes for international giants such as Bayer and Facebook, which sees her described by one peer as ‘the go-to person for any trial you’d have.’” Peer litigators described Beth as “one of the finest trial lawyers in the country today” and “truly extraordinary,” with Chambers noting that “she stands out for consistently achieving excellence in all settings.”
“I am honored and humbled to receive this recognition from Chambers,” said Wilkinson. “This award is possible only because of standout work by the entire Wilkinson Walsh team, who consistently deliver impressive results for all of our clients.”
Since founding Wilkinson Walsh four years ago, Wilkinson has notched a string of standout trial victories and built the firm into a boutique powerhouse while mentoring the next generation of trial lawyers. She has also been recognized as “Trial Lawyer of the Year,” a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer,” and one of the “Top 10 Female Litigators” by Benchmark Litigation, “MVP of the Year for Trial Practice” by Law360, American Lawyer’s “Litigator of the Week”, and a Law360 Legal Lion. Wilkinson was also recently featured in a Law360 piece spotlighting “five women who are succeeding in largely male-dominated areas” of trial law.
