James Polkinghorn, partner at Fisher Phillip and head of the litigation practice in the Fort Lauderdale office, was selected for inclusion in the BTI Client Service All-Stars 2015. BTI Consulting Group determines this list based solely through client feedback.
BTI’s analysis for The BTI Client Service All-Stars for Law Firms draws on candid feedback from corporate counsel at the world’s largest organizations. BTI asks General Counsel and their direct reports to delineate, unprompted, the attorneys who drive superior client relationships. These in-depth telephone interviews determine precisely which attorneys top the charts in client service performance. Law firms and their attorneys have no influence on these rankings.
Polkinghorn has extensive experience litigating cases of all levels of complexity, from single-plaintiff discrimination claims to multi-party class and collective actions arising under state and federal labor and employment laws. He is also a certified mediator, which gives him a practical perspective on litigation strategy. He is "AV" Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell and has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America since 2009.
Polkinghorn earned his JD with honors from the University of Florida College of Law and is admitted to The Florida Bar and the District of Columbia Bar.
