In its recently released 2020 “Best Law Firms” rankings, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers gave Johnson & Bell, Ltd. a Tier 1 ranking as a top litigation defense law firm. According to the two publications, firms included in the 2020 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a Tier 1 ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. 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.

Twenty-nine of our attorneys have also been designated as Leading Lawyers and Emerging Lawyers in 2019.
