Who has succeeded in demonstrating the Lense-Thirring effect?

This effect is one that describes the rotational motion of the Earth from a space-time structure. This effect is the "drag" of the geometrical structure of space-time due to rotational motion of the object which causes the gravitational-inertial field.

Lense-Thirring frame dragging has been measured to about 10 or 20% accuracy by two satellite experiments. Look up LAGEOS and GP-B (Gravity Probe B).
