Baron and Budd asbestos and mesothelioma lawyers selected once again to the Legal 500 list of top law firms.

The national mesothelioma and plaintiffs’ law firm of Baron and Budd has once again been chosen to be on the Legal 500 list of top law firms in mass torts and class action litigation. Since 2008, Baron and Budd has been continually named by the Legal 500 as one of the top two toxic tort firms in the U.S. Baron and Budd was one of only two firms selected for the top tier of the toxic tort reforms category.

“I am honored that the firm has been selected to such a prestigious directory,” said Russell Budd, president and managing shareholder of Baron and Budd. “Our attorneys work hard to protect the rights of people and keep the courtroom doors open to those who have been harmed by negligence.”

The Legal 500 employs third-party researchers to interview thousands of prospective law firms over 90 countries around the globe to find the “best of the best” and provide objective feedback on law firms based on feedback from judges, previous clients and other lawyers in the area. The directory defines its United States list as “the guide to the preeminent firms in the world’s strongest and most competitive legal market.”

Baron and Budd’s 2012 listing highlighted the national mesothelioma firm’s “strong reputation nationwide in toxic tort multi-district litigation.” Russell Budd, Scott Summy, Bruce Steckler and Burton LeBlanc were also mentioned as “highly recommended” attorneys, with Russell Budd listed as a leading lawyer.

Baron and Budd is a recognized leader in the world of plaintiffs’ and mesothelioma law firms. The firm has been selected seven times to the National Law Journal’s esteemed Plaintiffs’ “Hot List” as an exemplary firm. Only around a dozen law firms in the U.S “that have done exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs’ side” are selected for the “Hot List” each year. The firm was also awarded the prestigious Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from Trial Lawyers for Public Justice in 2006 for its work on two cases that spanned more than 20 years and involved over 1,500 plaintiffs affected by groundwater contamination in Tucson, Arizona.
