)-- Philadelphia labor, employment and workers’ compensation law firm Willig, Williams & Davidson has been named a “Best Law Firm” for 2017 by U.S. News – Best Lawyers®, again achieving Philadelphia and Harrisburg Metropolitan Tier 1 rankings in the practice areas of union labor law, litigation for labor and employment and employment law on behalf of individuals, as well as a national ranking in employee benefits (ERISA) law.
Best Law Firms rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes 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.
The highest honor, a Tier 1 ranking, is based on a firm's overall evaluation, which is derived from a combination of its clients' impressive feedback, the high regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for the firm, and the information that the firm provided to Best Lawyers via a survey.
To be eligible for a Best Law Firm ranking, a firm must have at least one lawyer included in The Best Lawyers in America. Attorneys are neither required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed. For 2017, 12 Willig, Williams & Davidson attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in Best Lawyers.
