“I am pleased that the researchers at Best Lawyers continue to recognize us,” said Evan H. Krinick, Rivkin Radler’s Managing Partner. “Being acknowledged for our work in 24 different practice areas is especially gratifying.”

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Lawyer of the Year is awarded to individual lawyers with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Only one lawyer is recognized as the “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and location.

Ones to Watch is a recognition given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States. Ones to Watch recipients typically have been in practice for 5-9 years. The methodology for determining these awards is peer-review, since lawyers are the best resource to provide feedback on the caliber of the work performed by their peers.
