"Law Firm of the Year" Honorees

"Law Firm of the Year" awards recognize a single top firm for its work in a specific legal practice area nationwide. Awards are determined based on a handful of factors, including lawyer feedback, the number of lawyers included in Best Lawyers for that firm and practice area, the number of office locations a firm has, historical analysis of the firm's "Lawyer of the Year" awards, materials submitted by firms and the firm's overall scope and areas of expertise.
