Angel West Named to Benchmark Litigation's 2017 Top 250 Women in Litigation

September 6, 2017

Benchmark Litigation has recognized Angel West for the sixth consecutive year as one of the Top 250 Women in Litigation in its annual Top 250 Women in Litigation publication. 


An Iowa-based litigator with Nyemaster Goode, West handles a variety of litigated matters.


The Top 250 Women in Litigation publication’s extensive research process, which encompasses six months of investigation into the individual litigators’ professional activities as well as client feedback surveys and individual interviews, has culminated in the selection of the most distinguished women in the world of litigation. These women have earned their place amongst the leading female litigators by participating in some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history as well as by earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients. Though they hail from widely different practice areas, they all share the distinction of being recognized as top players in their respective fields.

Listed within The Midwest section of the Top 250 Women in Litigation publication, Benchmark Litigation has this to say about West:

Nyemaster Goode’s Angel West maintains her practice with a strong focus on business and commercial litigation, data breach and information securities litigation, and ERISA litigation.  She participates in numerous cases involving breaches of fiduciary duty, financial services matters, and represents high profile clients on Section 36(b) ‘excessive fee’ claims.


Attorneys named to the 2017 publication, including West, were chosen through several phases of research:  namely, the review of their recent case work, peer review, and a consideration of client feedback on their performance.

In addition to this honor, Nyemaster Goode also enjoys a number of firm-wide rankings and further individual attorney recognition by Benchmark Litigation.
