The surveys asked about factors considered vital to law firm hiring or referral decisions including expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to a firm. Information was also collected about billing ranges, pro-bono commitment, diversity and the significance of major legal matters undertaken by the firm that cannot be weighed in monetary terms. The survey ranked nearly 9,000 firms in 81 practice areas in 171 metropolitan areas and 7 states. Less than 5% of the ranked firms earned the “Tier 1” national ranking in 39 practice areas.
