For the seventh consecutive year, Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest law firms, has been ranked as one of the 2017 “Best Law Firms” in the nation by U.S. News and Best Lawyers®.
Four of the firm’s offices received tier-one ratings in multiple practice areas. Criteria for inclusion on the top law firms list includes scope of practice, expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, civility and client reference.
“Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a combination of law firm leader and client feedback, independent research, and responses gathered from Best Lawyers peer-reviews. To be eligible for a ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who has received high enough peer-review to be listed in the current edition of Best Lawyers. Firms are eligible in the practice area(s) and metro region(s) in which they have listed lawyers.
Awards were given to law firms in 122 metropolitan areas and eight states based on rankings of more than 12,000 firms in 74 national practice areas. Using a tiered rather than a ranked system, Plunkett Cooney was recognized in the following first-tier categories:
