Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which leading attorneys throughout the country cast more than two million detailed evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
The 25th anniversary edition of Best Lawyers lists more Cooley attorneys than any previous edition. The Cooley lawyers included are listed below, along with the areas of law for which they were selected. This information is also available at www.bestlawyers.com.
