“Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes evaluations by clients and lawyers, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and information provided by law firms as part of a formal submission process.

During the U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers interview process, clients and peers were asked to evaluate firms based on responsiveness, understanding of the client’s business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, integrity and civility, as well as whether they would refer a matter to the firm and/or consider the firm a worthy competitor. Among clients who took part in the survey, many provided comments about Varnum.
