Varnum LLP has been ranked nationally in 3 practice areas and regionally in 55 practice areas in the 2015 "Best Law Firms" list by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®, released today.

Firms included in the 2015 "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," stated Best Lawyers.

"We are gratified to see that the firm received top rankings in many areas of business law as well as in specific industries, including banking, health care and real estate," said Managing Partner Scott A. Huizenga. "Our litigation practice – which cuts across all areas of law – was also clearly recognized as a strength."

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings, for the fifth 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.
