Manhattan trial lawyers Lisa Bentley and Anna Aguilar quickly realized that repeat business would be crucial when the pair launched a boutique legal practice eight years ago.
“As litigators, pretty much everything has a finite limit,” said Bentley, who along with Aguilar started her career at Big Law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher. “Matters end up in settlement or at trial, so it’s important to have repeat clients or clients with different kinds of litigation.”
Their firm, Aguilar Bentley, has since landed clients like Morgan Stanley, Prudential Financial and payroll giant Automatic Data Processing, Inc. It has also added two more lawyers to its roster.
