The rankings are based on an evaluation process that involves collecting client and attorney evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys in their field and reviews of additional information provided by law firms. Respondents were asked to rate firms based on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer another client to the firm. All of the feedback is combined to create an overall score for each firm.
