The survey responses as part of these rankings were combined with more than 3.9 million evaluations of individual lawyers in these firms in the most recent Best Lawyers survey. In addition to lawyer and client feedback, law firms were asked to provide U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers with general demographic and background information on the law firm and attorneys. This survey also gave firms an opportunity to share information on client profiles, the significance of major legal matters they've undertaken, monetary and transactional values (where meaningful and applicable), and other data that speaks to the strengths of a law firm's practice areas.
