The firm’s offices in Dallas and 17 other cities received “Metropolitan Tier 1 Rankings” for Employment Law, Labor Law, Employee Benefits, Labor and Employment Litigation, and/or ERISA Litigation. This is the fourth consecutive year the Dallas office has received this honor. Fisher Phillips also has offices in Houston and San Antonio.
Achieving a “First-Tier” ranking signifies a quality law practice and breadth of legal experience and knowledge. Rankings are determined through a combination of feedback from clients and peers, as well as the information provided by the firm in response to the Law Firm Survey.
The 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© was based on 7.3 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers, which resulted in about 55,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
