Bartko Zankel Ranked in 2022 “Best Law Firms”

February 2022

Bartko Zankel is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized for the 12th consecutive year in the U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings—nationally in 1 practice area and regionally in 7 practice areas.

Firms included in the 2022 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers.  Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

The 2022 “Best Law Firms” includes rankings in 75 national practice areas and 127 metropolitan-based practice areas.  Additionally, one “Law Firm of the Year” was named in each nationally-ranked practice area.  Rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in the field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a 2022 ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer recognized in the 12th edition of The Best Lawyers in America list for that particular location and specialty.

Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale.  Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
