Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
The Health Law Consultancy is once again ranked Chicago Metropolitan Tier 1 and National Tier 2 for health care law by the U.S. News–Best Lawyers® 2014 “Best Law Firms” survey. The firm, launched in 2009, has been ranked for health care law by U.S. News–Best Lawyers® for four straight years.
The Health Law Consultancy is the only firm focused exclusively on health care law among the 11 law firm health law practices ranked “Metropolitan Tier 1” in Chicago for 2014. The firm is distinctive as the only boutique with National Tier 1 or Tier 2 health care law rankings for 2014 offering substantial experience in health insurance reform, health care antitrust and health data privacy and security.
“We are delighted and honored to continue to be recognized as a leading health law practice,” said firm principal, Jack Rovner. “Our firm’s top rankings by U.S. News–Best Lawyers® affirm our vision to position The Health Law Consultancy as a different kind of law firm—one that applies health law strategically for client business benefit and uses predictable project pricing for assured client budgeting.”
“The 2014 survey results for our firm spur us to continually pursue opportunities for improvement,” explained managing principal, Kathy Roe. “We want to align our firm’s ongoing efforts to improve the quality of its service delivery with those of our health industry clients.”
The U.S. News–Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process conducted by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®. That process includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review by leading attorneys in their field, and review of information provided by law firms in a formal survey submission. To be eligible for ranking in a particular practice and metropolitan area for 2014, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is listed in the 19th edition of Best Lawyers in America© in that particular practice and metropolitan area.
The first tier ranking in each metropolitan area includes those law firms that score within a certain percentage of the highest scoring firm(s) for a particular practice area; the second tier ranking includes those law firms that score within a certain percentage of the next highest scoring firm(s) for the particular practice area, and so on. The national rankings are based on the metropolitan rankings as well as on the number of offices each law firm has with a metropolitan ranking and on the level of legal activity in each metropolitan area.
