Thirteen Attorneys Included in Best Lawyers in America 2018

August 15, 2017

Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons is pleased to announce that 13 lawyers have been named to the 2018 edition of the The Best Lawyers in America®.

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which nearly 87,770 leading attorneys cast almost 10 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Lawyers on the Best Lawyers in America list 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 ensure they are in current practice and in good standing.
