Norton Rose Fulbright honored as a 2018 Best Law Firm

November 1, 2017

For the eighth consecutive year, US News & World Report and Best Lawyers has listed Norton Rose Fulbright as one of the nation's Best Law Firms in a host of practice areas.

We have also been named the 2018 Edition Law Firm of the Year in  Equipment Finance Law and Trademark Law. Only one law firm per legal practice area is receiving this recognition.

We were nationally ranked in 46 practice areas and listed in 164 metropolitan practice areas for 2018. Of those practice areas, we earned 27 national first-tier designations, and 111 first-tier rankings in various metropolitan regions.

Best Law Firms rankings are based on client evaluations, peer reviews and firm submissions. To be eligible, a law firm must have at least one lawyer listed in Best Lawyers in America for that location and practice area. Because of population and comparative data, some of the metropolitan areas, such as Colorado, cover an entire state.

The 2018 Best Law Firms national first-tier rankings will be featured in the Best Law Firms Legal Issue, and both the national and metropolitan first-tier rankings will be listed in the Best Law Firms General Counsel Publication.

Listed below are our national and metropolitan rankings for 2018. First-tier rankings are indicated with an asterisk (*).
