Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers® lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Almost 108,000 industry leading lawyers are eligible to vote (from around the world), and we have received over 13 million evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world.
For the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 9.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 67,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered a singular honor.
Best Lawyers Process
“Best Lawyers® was founded in 1981 with the purpose of recognizing extraordinary lawyers in private practice through an exhaustive peer-review process. Almost 40 years later, we are proud to continue to serve as the most reliable, unbiased guide to legal talent worldwide,” says Phil Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers®.
The process begins when lawyers are nominated for consideration. They are divided by geographic region and practice area and are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo an additional verification process to make sure they are currently practicing and in good standing. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers®.
Dean has been listed in Best Lawyers in America© since 2013.
