Clients were asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Lawyers also voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to the firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. In addition, the rankings incorporate millions of evaluations of tens of thousands of individual leading lawyers collected by Best Lawyers in its most recent annual survey.
