U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers® have released the 2011-2012 “Best Law Firms” rankings, and once again Dickinson, Mackaman, Tyler & Hagen, P.C. is well represented in the rankings for the Des Moines, Iowa metropolitan area. The firm received Tier 1 “Best Law Firms” rankings in the Des Moines legal market for the following 19 areas of law:
In addition, the firm received Tier 2 recognition in Appellate Practice; Commercial Litigation; Litigation – Labor & Employment; Litigation – Real Estate; and Mergers & Acquisitions.
The complete rankings, which include tiered rankings of 9,633 law firms in 119 legal practice areas, are posted online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com. Full data for the law firms that received rankings is also available online, from the largest firms in the country to hundreds of one-person and two-person law firms, providing a comprehensive view of the U.S. legal profession that is unprecedented both in the range of firms represented and in the range of qualitative and quantitative data used to develop the rankings.
The mission of “Best Law Firms” from the start has been to help guide referring lawyers and clients – from the country’s largest companies needing corporate legal advice to individuals needing to get a divorce or write a will.
“U.S News has more than two decades of experience in providing the public with the most accurate and in-depth rankings of a wide range of institutions, including our Best Law Schools rankings,” says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law schools rankings.”
“Best Lawyers was very pleased with the reaction from the legal profession and from legal clients to the first edition of the “Best Law Firms” rankings,” says Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers. “By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, we continue to believe that we are providing clients with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.”
