The 2015 report of more than 12,000 firms by practice area is 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. Results were combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score for each firm.
The national first tier rankings will be published in November in a special legal issue released by U.S. News & World Report. The national and metropolitan first tier rankings will be featured in the 2015 “Best Law Firms” general counsel publication. All of the rankings, in all tiers, will be published online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com
