The firm's Litigation Department of the Year honor recognizes Swift Currie's successful representation in litigation matters and crisis counsel during the past year. Swift Currie’s litigation department strives to meet its clients’ unique needs in each case, whether that means negotiating early settlements, posturing the case for summary judgment, trying the case or defending or pursuing an appeal. The firm's attorneys analyze each case and confer with clients to determine a case-by-case strategy for handling each matter.
Crystal McElrath was named in the On the Rise category, which recognizes attorneys under the age of 40 who are expected to go far in the field. Since joining the firm, McElrath has built a robust practice handling workers’ compensation and employment issues. She is seen as a young leader within the firm and simultaneously participates in the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion, Hiring and Business Development committees.
