Best Lawyers methodology
According to Best Lawyers, "Law Firm of the Year" awards recognize a single top firm for its work in a specific legal practice area (nationwide). Winners are chosen based on lawyer ballot feedback, the firm's coverage and scope in a particular area, previous firm "Lawyer of the Year" awards, and the firm's reputational expertise in a practice area.
Lawyer of the Year recognitions are awarded to lawyers who have received the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and region. Best Lawyers only names one lawyer as the "Lawyer of the Year" in each field and location.
