About the Best Law Firm Award
Every year, U.S. News & World Report releases its esteemed list featuring the nation’s best law firms. These rankings are determined through an extensive analysis of more than 12 million evaluations reflecting over 22,000 law firms and 115,000 individual lawyers.
The law firms and attorneys included in the publication are placed in one of three tiers. Levin & Perconti was classified as a Tier 1 firm, indicating an impressive degree of respect from both clients and the legal community.
In the 2023 edition of the U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” publication, tens of thousands of law firms were under consideration, meaning our Tier 1 distinction was conferred upon the best of the best.
The Best Lawyers Nomination and Award Process
The nomination process begins with the submission of lawyer names along with the firms with which they are affiliated. These submissions can be accompanied by designated practice areas or specialties. A dedicated research team then reviews and finalizes the nominations.
Peer reviews are at the heart of the Best Lawyers award, and only currently-recognized attorneys are asked to provide feedback on Best Lawyers candidates.
Once extensive insight has been collected, the Best Lawyers team proceeds with a detailed analysis. This is followed by an eligibility check, in which all nominated lawyers are confirmed as bar association members in excellent standing.
