Best Lawyers, the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession, has recognized 223 lawyers from our US offices in its Best Lawyers in America 2022 edition and honors 11 lawyers as 2022 Lawyers of the Year in their respective markets.
First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is based entirely on an annual peer-review and voting.
Lawyers honored as Lawyer of the Year received significantly high ratings from peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers. This award recognizes lawyers who have a high level of integrity, professionalism, and ability. Only one lawyer is recognized as a Lawyer of the Year for each specialty and location.
The Best Lawyers in America highlights those recognized who received the top votes in a peer-review survey in which lawyers cast votes based on the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same legal practice area.
