Dec 2011 | Announcements

Richardson is recognized by Best Lawyers in the practice area of ‘Commercial Litigation’ and sub-practice area of ‘Commercial Litigation – Defendants.’ Selection is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers (Copyright 2011 by Woodward/White, Inc.) has become regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
