32 Baker Donelson Attorneys Named "Lawyers of the Year" by The Best Lawyers in America® 2021


Each year, The Best Lawyers in America® designates a select group of individuals as "Lawyers of the Year" in high-profile specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. Lawyers being honored as "Lawyer of the Year" are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments that Best Lawyers conducts with thousands of leading lawyers each year.
