Prince Lobel Recognized in 2014 U.S. News and Best Lawyers Best Law Firms Survey

Firm News · November 1, 2013

In the fourth edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms,” Prince Lobel has received national rankings for its wide-ranging expertise in litigation as well as in media law. In addition, the number of Tier I and Tier II practices in Boston continues to grow.

According to Best Lawyers, the 2014 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America©, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 12,000 attorneys provided over 330,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,000 clients provided close to 20,000 evaluations.  In addition, to provide personal insight, a new Law Firm Leaders Survey was implemented in the decision-making process.

“Because we combine hard data with peer reviews and client assessments,” says Steven Naifeh, President and Co-Founder of Best Lawyers, “more and more clients inform us ours are the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”

Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.
