Historic $108.9 Million BakerHostetler Win Joins National Law Journal "Verdicts Hall of Fame"

News / November 2, 2021

On November 1, the National Law Journal offered high-profile recognition for the $108.9 million judgment achieved by a BakerHostetler trial team in 2016. The verdict in Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. v. ConAgra Foods Inc. was earned by a team led by Partner Gil Keteltas and now-retired Partner Bob Abrams. In 2018, the verdict was unanimously affirmed by the Nebraska Supreme Court and now has been included in National Law Journal’s “Verdicts Hall of Fame” publication. Double the largest judgment in Nebraska history at the time and one of the five largest breach of contract verdicts nationwide since 2016, the verdict previously earned the firm recognition on National Law Journal’s “Elite Trial Lawyers” list, and garnered Abrams and Keteltas honors as National Law Journal “Litigation Trailblazers” for their trial advocacy.
