August 31, 2011

Sullivan & Worcester proudly announces that 27 attorneys were selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2012®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

For 29 years, Best Lawyers has come to be regarded – by both the legal profession and the public – as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the U.S. The new 2012 Best Lawyers is based on a rigorous national survey involving more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

Because of the rigorous and transparent methodology used by Best Lawyers, 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.”
