The U.S. News – Best Lawyers report is based on client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from attorneys in their field and review of information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Clients were asked to rate firms' expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Peers voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor.
