Overall, the firm garnered Tier 1 metropolitan rankings across 62 practice areas and all nine of its offices.

Produced by The Best Lawyers In America® and U.S. News & World Report, the 2018 edition of “Best Law Firms” ranks law firm practice areas nationally and across more than 180 metropolitan areas. “Law Firm of the Year” rankings are indicative of impressive overall performance in a particular practice area as determined through the research process. All “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on client evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys in the practice areas, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a national or metropolitan ranking, a law firm practice area must have at least one lawyer ranked as a “Best Lawyer” in that practice.
