Niles, Barton & Wilmer, LLP has been named a Tier 3 National “Best Law Firm” in Admiralty & Maritime Law by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® in 2014. The firm also received a Tier 2 ranking in Baltimore in Admiralty & Maritime Law.
Firms included in the 2014 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. This is the fourth consecutive year U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers has announced the “Best Law Firms” rankings.
The 2014 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. 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. Awards were given in 74 national practice areas and 120 metropolitan practice areas. One “Law Firm of the Year” is named in 87 of the ranked practice areas.
The 2014 “Best Law Firms” list will be featured in two publications, distributed later in November 2013. The national first‐tier rankings will be featured in the first edition of the “Best Law Firms” Legal Issue, which will be distributed to over 30,000 C‐level executives. National and metropolitan first‐tier rankings will be featured in the “Best Law Firms” Standalone Publication, which will be distributed to more than 30,000 general counsel and in digital format to more than 60,000 private practice lawyers worldwide.
