Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® have announced the 2015 “Best Law Firms” rankings. Indianapolis based Price Waicukauski & Riley received a Tier 1 Ranking in two separate areas of practice: Commercial Litigation and Litigation-Banking and Finance.
According to U.S. News, firms included in the 2015 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
“For thirty years, U.S. News has provided consumers with accurate, in-depth information and rankings of a wide range of institutions,” says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law school rankings.”
U.S. News states that to be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 17,000 attorneys provided almost 600,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.
“For five years, we have combined massive amounts of hard data with peer reviews and client assessments to develop our law firm rankings,” says Steven Naifeh, CEO and Co-Founder of Best Lawyers. “Increasingly, clients tell us that ours are the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms available anywhere.”
Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity. Awards were given in 74 national practice areas and 120 metropolitan practice areas. One “Law Firm of the Year” is named in 73 of the nationally ranked practice areas.
Principal Member Henry Price commented, “We are honored to receive this designation and feel this honor exemplifies the exemplary efforts of our team of attorneys.” Price has been listed in Best Lawyers since 1983 and was named the 2012 Indianapolis Best Lawyers® Lawyer of the Year in the Litigation - Banking & Finance practice area. In addition, member Will Riley was recently honored by Best Lawyers® as the 2015 Indianapolis Mass Tort Litigation–Plaintiffs Class Action Lawyer of the Year.
