Firm News · October 9, 2010

U.S. News and Best Lawyers announced that Prince Lobel achieved three rankings in metropolitan practice areas in its inaugural “Best Law Firms” survey.  The firm was honored with top tier rankings in three practice areas in metropolitan Boston. Clients and leading lawyers were asked to rate the law firms they consider best in their practice area. Prince Lobel’s rankings include:

Tier 1

Media & First Amendment Law

Tier 2

Insurance Law

Tier 3

Criminal Defense: White-Collar
Trusts & Estates Law

Prince Lobel Managing Partner Robert P. Maloney stated, “We are pleased to be recognized with some of the largest area law firms, and honored that we were selected by both our clients and our peers in the legal profession.”

These rankings were published in U.S. News & World Report, a stand-alone “Best Law Firms” publication, which was sent to 30,000 general counsel in the U.S. and to 55,000 leading lawyers globally, and a special section on the USNews.com website.

The U.S. News/Best Lawyers rankings covered 8,782 law firms and 81 practice areas.  Rankings were determined with hard data compiled by U.S. News researchers and with reputational surveys collected by Best Lawyers staff.

Reputational input was received from 9,514 clients — including every Fortune 100 company and 587 of the Fortune 1000 companies.  These responses provided more than 194,000 firm practice area evaluations, while some 6,200 clients provided researchers more than 11,000 comments about law firm practice areas and individual lawyers. Also, about 9,000 lawyers completed nearly 595,000 practice area evaluations.
