HeplerBroom Included in 2013 U.S. News & Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" Rankings
U.S. News & Best Lawyers has announced the release of the 2013 "Best Law Firms" rankings. HeplerBroom, long recognized as a premier Midwest Regional law firm, has been ranked nationally as a Tier 2 for its work across the country in mass tort, class action, and professional negligence defense.
HeplerBroom maintained its status as the highest ranking of a Tier 1 law firm in the St. Louis metropolitan area, while expanding its Tier 1 practice areas to include: Criminal Defense - White-Collar, Litigation - Antitrust, Litigation - Eminent Domain & Condemnation, Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions - Defendants, and Personal Injury Litigation - Defendants. The Firm also ranked highly as a Tier 2 firm in the S. Louis Metropolitan area in Antitrust Law, Commercial Law, Franchise Law, Litigation - Intellectual Property, Litigation - Securities, Professional Malpractice Law-Defendants.
The U.S.News - Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" rankings are based on the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process, according to the organizations. All data were combined into an overall score for each firm. This data was then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and at the national level. Because firms were often separated by small or insignificant differences in overall score, the organizations use a tiering system rather than ranking law firms sequentially.
HeplerBroom LLC's Managing Partner, Larry Hepler commented: "We are very pleased with this recognition of the high quality and high value legal services we provide to our clients. As we have continued to grow, even in challenging times, we have maintained our focus on unparalleled client service, communication, and practical results." "We look forward to a bright future."
