The 2024 rankings are based on Best Law Firms’ proven methodology that relies on qualitative and quantitative data on legal skillset, achievements and client successes collected through a submission process managed by Best Lawyers. This year’s edition awarded national Best Law Firms recognitions to 2,202 firms and 16,324 firms received Best Law Firms regional recognitions. In addition, 64 firms leading the charge earned the distinguished “Law Firm of the Year” designation across the 75 nationally ranked practice areas.

“These rankings – our first independently published rankings and 14th edition – serve as a true North Star for the industry,” said Best Lawyers CEO Phillip Greer. “We know that the legal profession–like so many industries today–is undergoing a transformation led by proliferating technology, global demands, and evolving social norms. Through these rankings, we can not only identify the game changers for law firms today, but also focus on key issues such as integrating AI and addressing DE&I that are positioning them and the profession for future success.”

The 2024 rankings, which are distributed to more than 30,000 C-Suite and in-house counsel through our standalone publication, were evaluated from the largest participation pool to date, which incorporate more than 97,000 client submissions, more than 2.8 million Best Law Firms votes on ballots and more than 13.7 million evaluations of more than 23,000 firms. The rankings highlight a unique combination of high-quality law practices and the full breadth of legal expertise that has always been differentiated by the credibility and transparent rankings process developed by Best Lawyers.
