Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the most credible measure of legal integrity and distinction in the United States. As such, recognition by Best Lawyers symbolizes excellence in practice. Because Best Lawyers is based on a rigorous peer-review survey in which more than 60,000 leading attorneys cast almost 7.4 million confidential evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” Steven Naifeh, Managing Editor of Best Lawyers says, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for 30 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of recognition in the legal profession.” For the past three decades, Best Lawyers has come to be regarded – by both the legal profession and the public – as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States.
