(Memphis, TN / August 19, 2015) Baker Donelson is pleased to announce that 264 of its attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.
Twenty-five of the Firm's attorneys were also recognized by Best Lawyers® as "Lawyers of the Year," a designation given to a select group of individuals in high-profile specialties in large legal communities. Only a single attorney in each specialty in each community is honored.
In addition to the individual attorneys recognized, Baker Donelson is top-listed in the nation in ten practice areas: Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships), Closely Held Companies and Family Businesses Law, Litigation – Construction, Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants, Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants, Non-Profit/Charities Law, Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants, Product Liability Litigation – Defendants, Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants and Transportation Law.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are based on exhaustive peer-review surveys in which over 55,000 leading attorneys cast more than 6.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. The publication now covers almost 70 countries and 140 practice areas, and Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
