Mayer Brown earns 128 first-tier rankings in 2012-2013 “Best Law Firms” rankings

1 November 2012
Mayer Brown, a leading global law firm, achieved first-tier rankings in 128 national and metropolitan categories, including 42 national first-tier rankings, in the 2012-2013 US News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings. Overall, the firm was ranked in 176 national and metropolitan categories.

In addition, Mayer Brown was named “Law Firm of the Year” in the Appellate and Transportation Law categories. Only one law firm per legal practice area receives this recognition.

“Best Law Firms” ranks more than 10,000 US law firms in 80 national legal practice areas and in 118 metro or state practice areas. A primary determinant of the rankings were evaluations of law firms by clients voting on firms’ expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer another client to a firm.

“Mayer Brown’s exceptional results in this year’s ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings demonstrate a high degree of client satisfaction with the legal solutions our lawyers provide across a wide range of practice areas and geographies,” said Mayer Brown Chairman Paul W. Theiss.
