St. Lawrence News


Three St. Lawrence University alumni have been included in lists selecting the top individuals in the legal profession by the magazine Lawdragon, which covers legal news and reviews lawyers and judges.

In its fall 2006 issue, Lawdragon included Kevin Arquit '75 and James Benedict '71 in its list of the 500 leading lawyers in America; both were listed in the spring 2006 issue among the 500 leading litigators in America.

The summer 2006 issue included a list of the 500 rising stars of the legal profession and Sean Murphy '91 was included in that ranking.

Arquit, of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett in New York, is "the go-to lawyer for antitrust issues," according to Lawdragon, which adds, "Major companies seek his advice to complete their corporate deals."

Benedict is a partner in the litigation practice group of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy in New York. Lawdragon's review states, "Benedict has handled more than 150 major class and shareholder derivative actions alleging violations of state and federal antitrust and securities laws. These include some of the largest class-actions in the nation."

The summer magazine noted that Murphy, also a partner in the litigation department of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy in New York, was preparing for his second billion-dollar trial as the issue went to press, in a case that "will set the bar for the battles in the (mutual fund) industry."
