Local law firms rank high on 'U.S. News' list

Seven law firms with a strong Nashville presence have received the highest ranking in the 2014 “Best Law Firms” U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers rankings.

The seven firms (seen below in the attachment) were given National Tier 1 rankings in practice areas in which they are best known in Nashville (firms are eligible for a National Tier 1 ranking when a Metro Tier 1 ranking is given).  In other words, the firms below received a Metro Tier 1 ranking in that practice area that qualified them for the National Tier 1.

"U.S. News has more than two decades of experience in providing the public with the most accurate and in-depth rankings of a wide range of institutions, including our Best Law Schools rankings," says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. "Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law school rankings."
