Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because it is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which tens of thousands of lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers, 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.”
