We are pleased to announce the inclusion of 223 lawyers from our US offices in the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America, the oldest peer-review publication in the legal industry, as well as the recognition of 11 lawyers as 2022 Lawyers of the Year in their respective local markets. Each issue of Best Lawyers has been based purely on the results of an annual peer review and vote since the publication’s launch in 1983. An attorney must have received extremely high marks in surveys of hundreds of other top attorneys in order to be elected Lawyer of the Year. This award is frequently given to legal professionals who uphold the greatest standards of ethics, professionalism, and skill. Only one attorney from a certain practice area and geographic location is selected as Lawyer of the Year each year. This year’s edition of The Best Lawyers in America highlights the top lawyers in each state. In a survey of attorneys’ professional attributes, these lawyers received the most votes from their peers.
