Best Lawyers, first published in 1983, is recognized as the oldest and one of the most esteemed peer review guides in the legal profession worldwide. Thousands of firms nationwide are considered and reviewed through a rigorous evaluation process before U.S. News and Best Lawyers make selections for a first-tier “Best Law Firms” ranking.
The list is compiled based on extensive peer review evaluations from well-respected attorneys in similar practice areas, client and lawyer evaluations, and additional information included in the formal submission process. The reviews are based on several factors in the field such as expertise, integrity, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and the rate of referrals.
In addition to these rankings, twenty-one HunterMaclean attorneys were selected earlier this year for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2017.
