Law. Consulting. Technology.
To create its ranking of “Best Law Firms,” U.S. News and World Report surveyed thousands of law firms, law firm clients, attorneys, and recruiters. Law firms were ranked by clients on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of business needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and willingess to refer a law firm to another client. Law firms were also ranked by other lawyers on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to the firm, and whether they consider the firm a worthy competitor.
