U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers® have released the 2014 “Best Law Firms” rankings. Our Private Client Group received Tier 1 rankings nationally, and in the Atlanta and St. Louis regions, as well as a Tier 2 ranking for Orange County, California. Bryan Cave received numerous national and metropolitan rankings in the fourth edition of this annual analysis.

The rankings of more than 11,000 law firms by practice area are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. All data was combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score for each firm.

The national first-tier rankings were featured in the November U.S. News & World Report’s Money issue. The publication rankings can be viewed in their entirety at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/.
