Whitfield, Bryson & Mason has been listed as a “Best Law Firm” in the U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers 2015 ranking.
Firms included in the 2015 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a ranking signals a combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
WBM was recognized as a Metropolitan tier one firm for its construction law practice in Raleigh, N.C.
“For five years, we have combined massive amounts of hard data with peer reviews and client assessments to develop our law firm rankings,” says Steven Naifeh, CEO and Co-Founder of Best Lawyers. “Increasingly, clients tell us that ours are the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms available anywhere.”
The 2015 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in “The Best Lawyers in America,” which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the United States. More than 17,000 attorneys provided almost 600,000 law firm assessments, and nearly 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.
Awards were given in 74 national practice areas and 120 metropolitan practice areas.
“For 30 years, U.S. News has provided consumers with accurate, in-depth information and rankings of a wide range of institutions,” says Tim Smart, executive editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law school rankings.”
