Inclusion is considered a singular honor, as Best Lawyers™ is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey, and attorneys are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed. Founding shareholder Stuart Somach first appeared on the list in 1995.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. For the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 9.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 67,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
