Burford & Ryburn was recently ranked by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” as a top tier law firm in the areas of Employment Law and Legal Malpractice Law.
These rankings are based on a combination of data derived from clients, lawyers, and law firms. For example, clients are asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Lawyers also cast votes and are asked to consider expertise, responsiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. The “Best Law Firms” rankings incorporate the 7.4 million evaluations of 58,108 individual leading lawyers collected by Best Lawyers in its most recent annual survey. In addition to lawyer and client feedback, law firms are asked to provide general demographic and background information on the law firm and attorneys, and other data that speaks to the strengths of a law firm’s practice areas.
"For the 2020 'Best Law Firms' publication, the evaluation process has remained just as rigorous and discerning as it did when we first started ten years ago." says Phil Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers. "This year we reviewed 14,931 law firms throughout the United States – across 75 national practice areas – and a total of 2,106 firms received a national law firm ranking. We are proud that the 'Best Law Firms' rankings continue to act as an indicator of excellence throughout the legal industry."
Burford and Ryburn’s strength in the practice areas of Employment Law and Legal Malpractice Law is a result of the extensive experience and successful legal representation performed by attorneys Bob Begert, Simon Whiting, and Nicole Tong.
