Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons, LLP has received a Tier 1 national ranking in Insurance Law by U.S.News – Best Lawyers in "Best Law Firms" 2019. The leading survey of lawyers and law firms has ranked more than 13,372 firms in 75 practice across the nation to produce their list of 1st, 2nd and 3rd tier firms. This is the seventh year in a row Thompson Coe has received recognition among "Best Law Firms" by Best Lawyers."

The 2019 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record," said the Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" press release. "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 U.S. Over 10,000 attorneys provided more than 800,000 law firm assessments, and over 10,000 clients provided more than 90,000 evaluations." Thompson Coe's three Texas offices also received recognition regionally, totaling 9 metropolitan rankings. The Austin office was selected as a "Tier 1" firm in Insurance Law, Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants, and Product Liability Litigation-Defendants, and "Tier 2" in Administrative/Regulatory Law.  The Houston office was selected as a "Tier 1" firm in Insurance Law.  The Dallas office received a "Tier 1" ranking in Insurance Law , "Tier 2" in and Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants and Products Liability – Defendants, and "Tier 3" in Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants.

Clients were asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Here is what a few had to say:

Although I work with attorneys from other offices of Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons periodically, most of my work with them is done through Rick Harmon and the Dallas office. They consistently provide the best available expertise in my area of property insurance, along with exceptionally responsive service and a high level of understanding of our needs and operations. Their attorneys are always civil and professional, even in hostile situations. I would highly recommend them to other property insurers.

Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons is not only the best firm in Texas I have worked with, but the best firm overall nationally. Brian Martin and his team have done outstanding work for us for 20+ years, and the work has been consistently outstanding and completed with the maximum efficiency possible.

Lawyers also voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. We asked this group to vote on law firms that have a preeminent national presence within specified legal practice area(s) they know well. For the third year, a Law Firm Leaders Survey was implemented to provide personal insight on the legal landscape surrounding the nationally ranked practice areas. In addition to information from these surveys, the rankings incorporate the 7.3 million evaluations of 54,463 individual leading lawyers collected by Best Lawyers in its most recent annual survey.

In addition to lawyer and client feedback, law firms were asked to provide us with general demographic and background information on the law firm and attorneys, and other data that speaks to the strengths of a law firm’s practice areas. More information can be found here.
