Varnum LLP Ranked in 2014 "Best Law Firms"

November 1, 2013

Varnum LLP has been ranked nationally in 3 practice areas and regionally in 56 practice areas in the 2014 "Best Law Firms" list by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®, released today.

Firms included in the 2014 "Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

"We are gratified to see that the firm received top rankings in many of the areas in which we have historically been strong – corporate, tax, employment, and health care, among other core areas of our practice," said Managing Partner Scott A. Huizenga. "It is also notable that the firm's litigation practice – which cuts across all areas of law – was clearly recognized as a strength, with fully a third of our Tier 1 rankings and two national rankings in various areas of litigation."

The U.S. News Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings, for the fourth consecutive year, are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Clients and peers were asked to evaluate firms based on the following criteria: responsiveness, understanding of a 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, several provided comments about Varnum and cited the firm for being "professional, cost-conscious and effective," "very attentive," "very responsive," "truly concerned with how our business is doing," and "an excellent firm."
