Best Law FirmBest Law Firm 2016

In its second century of practice, Hare Wynn is one of the most respected plaintiffs' litigation firms in the country. Hare Wynn's success has come as a result of the unique opportunity its attorneys have had to become both experienced and successful trial lawyers, as well as legal tacticians. Whether arguing to a jury in a rural county in Arkansas or to the United States Supreme Court, Hare Wynn's lawyers have a proven track record of success for their clients.

Hare Wynn began in the late 1800's, and through the firm's founder, Francis Hare, was instrumental in making plaintiffs' litigation affordable to those needing high quality representation in significant litigation. Built on a legacy of representing individuals, Hare Wynn continues to build on more than 100 years of successful trial experience in its representation of individuals, Fortune 500 companies, small business, and government entities.

Most recently, the magnitude of the firm's litigation success was recognized when Hare Wynn was identified as one of the top plaintiff's firms in the United States in being named to the National Law Journal's 2011 Plaintiffs' Hot List. The Journal honored Hare Wynn as one of 20 firms nationally "that are at the cutting edge of plaintiffs' work – and giving the defense a run for their money."
