Benchmark Litigation Recognizes David Slossberg and Kristen Zaehringer as 2024 “Stars”10/05/2023
MILFORD, CT (October 5, 2023) - Hurwitz Sagarin Slossberg & Knuff LLC, a boutique law firm that focuses on litigation and land use, announced today that partners David Slossberg and Kristen Zaehringer were named to Benchmark Litigation’s 2024 guide.
Slossberg, a guide veteran, is designated as a Litigation Star, while Zaehringer has made her debut this year as a Future Star.
Benchmark Litigation is an industry-leading publication that evaluates and ranks litigation-focused law firms and attorneys across multiple jurisdictions. The rigorous methodology includes exhaustive research, client interviews, and peer feedback.
“HSSK is known for handling complex, multifaceted business disputes, ranging from high-profile class actions involving federal and state (CUTPA) unfair trade practices and antitrust violations to intellectual property matters, breach of contract, and employment matters, to name a few,” said Slossberg. “The firm is committed to fighting for those wronged on either side of a dispute.”
Benchmark Litigation selected Slossberg and Zaehringer based on the firm’s compelling submission, which included:
- A class-action lawsuit filed by former AIG Financial Products executives to recover unpaid deferred compensation.
- An anti-poaching, anti-trust class action filed on behalf of former Pratt & Whitney employees.
- A class action against Stone Academy filed on behalf of more than 1,000 former students seeking compensation and punitive damages for the school’s “abject failure” to provide promised education and training despite assurances that the school would ready them to become licensed practical nurses.
Other notable high-profile cases include litigation against Harvard Pilgrim Health Care by emergency room doctors challenging Connecticut’s surprise billing act and a putative class action filed on behalf of 30,000 former prisoners suing Connecticut over its “pay to stay” law.
HSSK is also recognized for its experience bringing claims under the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practice Act (CUTPA) and Slossberg’s contributions as editor of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices, Business Torts and Anti-Trust Treatise.
In addition to the Benchmark Litigation honors, HSSK’s attorneys have earned accolades from Chambers USA, Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers, Connecticut Law Tribune, and Martindale-Hubbell.
