As indicated in the published ranking methodology[ii], the “Best Law Firms” rankings 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. 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.
