Baker Donelson Top-Listed in the Nation in Six Practice Areas in The Best Lawyers in America® 2021 Listing

Baker Donelson is pleased to announce that 289 of its attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® and that 88 attorneys have been selected in the inaugural edition of the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch list.

Thirty-two 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 one attorney in each community for each specialty is honored.

The Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch list recognizes attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice. Honorees are individuals who have typically been in practice for five to nine years and have received positive feedback on the caliber of work from their peers.

In addition to the individual attorneys recognized, Baker Donelson is top-listed in the nation in six practice areas: Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships), Commercial Finance Law, Mergers and Acquisitions Law, Nonprofit/Charities Law, Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants, and Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants.
