Kramon & Graham Trial Lawyers Lawdragon 500 Leading Litigators

Oct 26, 2022 – Baltimore, Maryland

Kramon & Graham, a leading Maryland-based law firm providing litigation, real estate, and transactional services, announced today that five of its trial lawyers have been selected for recognition in the inaugural edition of Lawdragon 500 Leading Litigators in America.

 Lawdragon is considered a leading guide in the legal industry. According to the publisher, attorneys for the edition are "all-star litigators" who were selected "from a record number of submissions and independent research focused on recent cases and defense verdicts or settlements, as well as attorneys whose sustained excellence in trials is nothing short of remarkable."

 Published to include "the most elite courtroom advocates in the nation," the editorial team reports reviewing tens of thousands of antitrust, securities and financial, white-collar, product liability, IP, and class action litigators to identify the top lawyers behind the biggest, most important cases.

 Lawdragon recognizes the following Kramon & Graham attorneys:

 John Bourgeois:  Chair of the firm's Criminal Defense practice, John handles a variety of civil and criminal cases, including matters involving business disputes, administrative and licensing proceedings, intellectual property disputes, civil rights litigation, and admiralty and maritime matters. He has particular experience representing individual defendants charged with serious federal and state crimes. John also represents lawyers in malpractice and professional-responsibility proceedings.

 Andrew Jay Graham:  Co-founder of Kramon & Graham and one of the most highly regarded trial attorneys in Maryland, Andy has been involved in some of Maryland's most high-profile cases and jury trials. His practice focuses on matters involving complex business disputes, securities litigation, general civil litigation, professional liability, white-collar crime, trade secrets, and antitrust litigation. He is regularly retained by other lawyers and law firms in malpractice actions and grievance proceedings.

 Jean E. Lewis: Jean has more than 25 years of experience in trying and litigating complex civil cases for both plaintiffs and defendants. As a leader of the firm's Commercial Litigation group, she has extensive experience representing clients in professional liability claims, bankruptcy-related litigation, class actions, business disputes, and other commercial litigation.

 David J. Shuster: A trial lawyer and the firm's Managing Principal, Dave represents clients in high-stakes business and real estate litigation matters. In highly sensitive matters where reputation management is crucial, Dave has particular experience representing professionals and prominent members of the community. As chair of the firm's Asset Recovery & Bankruptcy Litigation practice, Dave has substantial experience representing commercial plaintiffs in large collection and asset-recovery claims, including for concealment of assets by alter-ego entities. He also represents clients in claims involving fatalities and catastrophic injuries, including product liability and medical malpractice claims.

James P. Ulwick: Recognized as one of Maryland's most highly skilled trial attorneys, Jim's practice focuses on criminal and civil litigation. His trial victories include high-stakes cases involving claims of legal malpractice; criminal misconduct by bank officers; breaches of complicated contracts, employment agreements, and land deals; serious personal injuries; RICO violations; securities violations; medical malpractice; and injuries from toxic torts, to name only a few. He has a national reputation for handling significant class action cases on both the defense and class sides.

 With their exceptional track record, Kramon & Graham attorneys are regularly recognized by legal ranking guides, including Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation, and Best Lawyers.
