Richardson + Burgess LLP is pleased to announce that the Firm has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers in America as one of the nation’s premier law firms with a ranking and expertise in Commercial Litigation.
The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings 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 as a worthy competitor.
Jim Richardson has been selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2014® (Copyright 2014 by Woodward/White, Inc.).
Selection is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 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 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc.) has become regarded as the “definitive guide to legal excellence.”
