Frequently Asked Questions

In response to our new initiative to collect client comments for lawyers listed in Best Lawyers, we have received a number of questions from marketing directors. Although not all the questions apply to every state or firm, we thought it would be best to share all the answers with our primary contacts in every listed firm in case you get similar questions from your lawyers.

The client comments will appear on the Best Lawyers website, not in our annual print edition.

Best Lawyers’ rigorous peer-review methodology remains the cornerstone of our lists, as it has for 25 years. We believe that thoughtful comments from clients, especially attributed ones, will make Best Lawyers even more useful to potential clients and referring lawyers.
