Gardere's Bankruptcy Group Earn National Honors in 'Best Law Firms' Survey

09.16.10

Gardere's Bankruptcy and Business Reorganization Practice Group has earned Metropolitan "Tier One" rankings in U.S. News' and Best Lawyers' inaugural “Best Law Firms” survey. Additionally, Gardere earned a national ranking for its work in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law.

"We are very honored by this recognition," says Deirdre Ruckman, chair of the Firm's Bankruptcy and Business Reorganization group. "We have an exceptional group of attorneys who are dedicated to providing clients the most comprehensive, reliable representation possible."

The full survey appears in the October 2010 edition of U.S. News & World Report magazine and a special section on the USNews.com website. The Firm earned national rankings in three additional practice areas and Metropolitan rankings in 14 different practice areas.

To compile the rankings, U.S. News-Best Lawyers surveyed thousands of law firm clients, leading lawyers and law firm managers, partners and associates, marketing officers and recruiting officers. Each were asked what factors they considered vital for clients hiring law firms, for lawyers choosing a firm to which to refer a legal matter, and for lawyers seeking employment.

Survey participants ranked firms based on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, integrity and whether they would refer a client to the law firm. In addition, information was collected about pro-bono commitment, diversity and the size and complexity of client matters. All of the data were combined into a U.S. News-Best Lawyers overall score for each firm.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
