In the face of skyrocketing legal costs and court delays; in the face of "bet the company" and opportunistic lawsuits; and in the face of "made as instructed" "expert" witnesses, trusting neutral experienced (in both the law and the relevant factual/expert/business area in dispute) deciders/ arbitrators (as opposed to lay jurors who too frequently "think" with their emotions) via the arbitration process has become progressively more rational. Hence, experienced, cost conscious litigators and general counsel are turning ever more frequently to the process which they themselves control and create: ARBITRATION.

Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Our belief has always been that the quality of a peer review survey is directly related to the quality of the voters.
