About Best Lawyers

Best Lawyers™ uses an internationally esteemed and intricate peer-review methodology to find and recognize the top lawyers across the globe. In fact, it’s the oldest and most respected lawyer ranking service in the world, founded by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith in 1981. For more than four decades, Best Lawyers has helped individuals find the best lawyer to represent their legal needs. 

Best Lawyers has recognized over 131,000 attorneys through over 13 million evaluations by their peers in 147 practice areas in 76 countries. Their lists of outstanding lawyers are drafted through exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading attorneys confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for a lawyer are positive enough for recognition by Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in future polls to stay in each edition. Attorneys are neither allowed nor permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be recognized by Best Lawyers.

Yearly publications appear:

All lawyers recognized in 2021 and before Best Lawyers lists also appeared in The Best Lawyers in America© books.
