“U.S. News is the global authority in rankings,” said Tim Smart, executive editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Evaluating law firms is a natural extension of what we do best.” Law firms included in the U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Law Firms” are those who have earned recognition for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from both clients and peers. “Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise,” according to the U.S. New & World Report release. The 2017 rankings were compiled from more than 800,000 law firm assessments and the over 10,000 clients who provided evaluations. Steven Naifeh, CEO and co-founder of Best Lawyers, said “This year we reviewed 13,803 law firms across the United States and across 122 practice areas to narrow our selection of the top 2005 law firm’s to receive a national law firm ranking.” Maynard is proud to be included among the distinguished listing of national recognized law firms.
