Notably, Ashby & Geddes’s “Litigation – Mergers & Acquisitions” practice has been recognized on a national level with a National Tier 3 ranking. In addition, its rankings for Metropolitan Tier 1 include three practice areas: “Commercial Litigation,” “Corporate Law,” and “Litigation – Securities.” Metropolitan Tier 2 includes two practice areas – “Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law” and “Litigation – Patent.”
Firms included in the 2019 Edition of “Best Law Firms” are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. The 2019 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client votes received on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer recognized first in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top five percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. Over 16,000 lawyers provided more than 1,125,000 law firm assessments, and almost 12,000 clients provided more than 107,000 evaluations. Ranked firms, presented in three tiers, are listed on a national and regional-based scale. Firms that received a tier designation reflect the high level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and practice areas. Awards were given in 75 national practice areas and 122 metropolitan practice areas. The 2019 “Best Law Firms” rankings can be seen in their entirety by visiting www.bestlawfirms.usnews.com.
