We are delighted to share that HW has for the 5th year in a row been named to Best Law Firms in American by US News and World Report. From the “Best Law Firms” Press Release:
Firms included in the 2017 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. “U.S. News is the global authority in rankings,” says Tim Smart, executive editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Evaluating law firms is a natural extension of what we do best.” The 2017 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and the 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 U.S. Over 10,000 attorneys provided more than 800,000 law firm assessments, and over 10,000 clients provided more than 90,000 evaluations.
HW founder Steven Weinberg was listed in Best Lawyers in America for the fifth year in a row.
