The Best Lawyers in America has recognized 21 Thompson Coe attorneys, including 12 on the Ones to Watch and four on the Lawyers of the Year in the 2023 editionSince it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence, and an unbiased source of legal referrals worldwide.

In this year’s list, Thompson Coe was recognized across 12 practice areas and added five attorneys to the Ones to Watch list. The Ones to Watch are recognitions given to attorneys for outstanding professional excellence in private practice who are earlier in their careers, typically 5-9 years in practice.

Lawyers on these lists are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing. Thompson Coe added many new attorneys to both lists this year, and included below next to their name is the first year the attorney was recognized.
