“We are very honored and pleased with our 2016 rankings by U.S. News & World Report,” said Lewis J. Pepperman, a senior partner and chair of the firm’s Business practice group. “These rankings underscore our dedication to client service and commitment to providing best in class legal services, across the board.”

According to Best Lawyers, the “2016 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 21,000 attorneys provided almost 700,000 law firm assessments, and over 8,000 clients provided more than 47,000 evaluations.”

Additionally, “Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.”
