Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP has earned a "Metropolitan First-Tier Ranking" in U.S. News' and Best Lawyers' inaugural “Best Law Firms” survey. 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.
Gardere received First-Tier Metropolitan Rankings in the Dallas office based on the Firm's work in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law, Corporate Law, Environmental Law, Information Technology Law, and Trusts & Estates Law. In Houston, the Firm earned First-Tier rankings for Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law, Criminal Defense: White-Collar, Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law, Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions - Defendants, Securitization and Structured Finance Law, and Tax Law.
Additionally, Gardere earned National Tier Two and Tier Three rankings in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law; Corporate Law; General Commercial Litigation; and Tax Law.
The Firm's Austin office received Metropolitan Tier Two recognition for the Government Relations Practice. The Dallas office earned the same rankings for Antitrust Law, Family Law, General Commercial Litigation, Mergers & Acquisitions Law, and Tax Law. In Houston, the firm was recognized in the Tier Two and Tier Three for work in Admiralty & Maritime Law, Corporate Law, Trusts & Estates Law, Environmental Law, General Commercial Litigation, and Oil & Gas Law.
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.
"We're happy to have been singled out by 'Best Law Firms' in what was clearly an exhaustive survey of legal talent nationwide," says Steve Good, Gardere's managing partner. "Gardere has always been committed to providing exceptional legal service, as well as giving back to our communities and maintaining a diverse workforce. We're please to see that commitment has paid off in recognition such as this."
The publications contained in this site do not constitute legal advice. Legal advice can only be given with knowledge of the client's specific facts. By putting these publications on our website we do not intend to create a lawyer-client relationship with the user. Materials may not reflect the most current legal developments, verdicts or settlements. This information should in no way be taken as an indication of future results.
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.
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.
