Rankings were based on surveys of more than 9,000 lawyers and clients in the U.S., including representatives of more than half the Fortune 1000 companies. Clients and peers were asked to assess law firms for their responsiveness, understanding of client business needs, cost-effectiveness, integrity, civility, and whether they would refer a client to the law firm.
