November 1, 2013

The law firm of Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C. is pleased to announce that U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” 2014 Edition has ranked the firm in the first tier nationally for its Franchise Law and Litigation – Construction practice groups.

In addition, the firm received first-tier rankings in the St. Louis metropolitan area for 14 practice areas including Franchise Law, which also was ranked in the first tier in Chicago. The following Greensfelder practice groups were ranked in the first tier for St. Louis:

  • Advertising Law
  • Construction Law

  • Franchise Law
  • Health Care Law
  • Labor Law - Management
  • Litigation - Construction
  • Medical Malpractice Law - Defendants
  • Personal Injury Litigation - Defendants
  • Real Estate Law
  • Tax Law

The 2014 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 12,000 attorneys provided over 330,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,000 clients provided close to 20,000 evaluations. In addition, to provide personal insight, a new Law Firm Leaders Survey was implemented in the decision-making process.

Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.

The 2014 “Best Law Firms” list will be featured in two publications, distributed later this month. The national first-tier rankings will be featured in the first edition of the “Best Law Firms” Legal Issue, which will be distributed to over 30,000 C-level executives. National and metropolitan first-tier rankings will be featured in the “Best Law Firms” General Counsel Publication, which will be distributed to more than 30,000 in-house counsel and in digital format to more than 60,000 private practice lawyers worldwide.
