The rankings of more than 11,000 law firms by practice area are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. All data was combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score for each firm.
The national first-tier rankings will be featured in U.S. News & World Report’s Money issue, on newsstands in November. The publication rankings can be viewed in their entirety at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/.
