Ninety-nine attorneys from Morrison & Foerster have made the 2008 Best Lawyers in America directory -- including 21 attorneys named to the list for the first time. Of the firm’s listed attorneys, 12 have been considered a Best Lawyer in America for 10 years or more, another 9, for 20 years or more.
Best Lawyers in America listings represent 79 specialties in all 50 states and Washington, DC., and is compiled through an exhaustive peer-review survey, developed and refined for nearly 25 years, in which thousands of the top lawyers in the U.S. confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Lawyers are not allowed to pay a fee to be listed.
Best Lawyers publishes an advertisement-free book each year to honor all those chosen – something that no other survey does. The forthcoming 14th edition of Best Lawyers (2008) is based on nearly 2 million confidential evaluations by only the top attorneys in the country. Best Lawyers also conducted thousands of extensive telephone interviews with leading attorneys throughout its balloting process.
The names of new listees appear in the online edition of Best Lawyers in America at www.BestLawyers.com and will be included when the 2008 edition of Best Lawyers is published this late fall.
