Methodology of Ranking for the 2024 Edition of “Best Law Firms”

The “Best Law Firms” rankings by Best Lawyers, distinguished for their rigorous and comprehensive methodology, represent a significant accolade in the legal industry. Qualification requires that a firm has at least one lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America® for their practice area and location. The ranking process begins with an extensive research phase, including submissions of firm surveys and client/professional references, combined with evaluations from the Best Lawyers® research. This data culminates in a firm’s overall score, dictating their placement in a tiered system that highlights nuanced performance differences. The 2024 edition is particularly notable, featuring over 97,000 client submissions, more than 2.8 million votes, and over 13.7 million evaluations of more than 23,000 firms, illustrating the award’s credibility and the depth of legal expertise it acknowledges.
