NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
The international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP has been named “Law Firm of the Year” in the U.S. News-Best Lawyers 2014 edition of Best Law Firms in two categories: Government Relations and Litigation-Real Estate. According to U.S. News and Best Lawyers, only one law firm is given the “Law Firm of the Year” designation in each of the 87 practice areas ranked nationally in the guide.
Greenberg Traurig received the designation for its Government Law & Policy and Real Estate Litigation practice groups as a result of an impressive overall performance in the evaluation process. The evaluation is based upon a combination of client evaluations, peer reviews from other lawyers in respective practice areas and an assessment of the firm’s work during the past 12 months conducted by the U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers.
“We are honored to have been selected for this national recognition,” said Tom J. Bond, co-chair of the firm’s Government Law & Policy practice and 2014 Best Lawyers in America “Lawyer of the Year” recipient. “This award recognizes the skill and dedication to client service of the professionals in our practice.”
“We are also very proud of our Government Law & Policy team whose work resulted in a ‘Tier 1’ metropolitan ranking in the Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Miami, Sacramento and Tallahassee metro markets,” added Harold Iselin, co-chair of the firm’s Government Law & Policy practice. The firm also received a ‘Tier 1’ ranking for Administrative/Regulatory Law in the Atlanta metro market.
“Our Real Estate Litigation team is dedicated to meeting our client’s needs and is honored to receive this designation,” said Alan Mansfield, co-chair of the firm’s Global Litigation practice. “We are also proud to have received the most first-tier rankings in the U.S. and a ‘Tier 1’ metropolitan ranking in Miami, Orlando, West Palm Beach, Las Vegas and New York City. These rankings and the Law Firm of the Year designation recognize the legal acumen and commitment to client service that our Real Estate Litigation team brings to the table both nationally and in numerous regional markets. When combined with Greenberg Traurig’s Real Estate Law Practice, which also received the most first-tier rankings in the U.S., it further reinforces the firm’s collaborative approach to sophisticated problem solving on our client’s behalf.”
