Norton Rose Fulbright lauded as a 2021 Best Law Firm

United States Press release - Recognition November 5, 2020

For the eleventh consecutive year, US News & World Report and Best Lawyers named Norton Rose Fulbright among the nation's Best Law Firms in a host of practice areas.

We were named Law Firm of the Year for Equipment Finance Law, which is awarded to a single firm for its work in the practice area nationwide.

Additionally, we were nationally ranked in 49 practice areas and listed in 164 metropolitan practice areas for 2021. Of those practice areas, we earned 29 national first-tier designations and 113 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 2021 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 2020. First-tier rankings are indicated with an asterisk (*).
