In its recently released 2021 “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 2021 “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.
“The Tier 1 ranking reflects the continued trust and support clients place in our ability to address their legal and business challenges,” stated Joseph R. Marconi, Johnson & Bell’s president. “Equally important is our continued rise in the commercial litigation rankings. Our hard work and trial success in this area are paying dividends.”
In addition to being recognized by Best Lawyers/US News & World Report as being a top litigation defense firm, twenty-four of our attorneys have been recognized by Martindale-Hubbell, holding the AV Preeminent, Distinguished or Peer-Reviewed ranking. Twenty-five of our attorneys have also been designated as Leading Lawyers, and three have been recognized as Emerging Lawyers in 2020. Eight of our attorneys have been recognized by Best Lawyers in America this year, and four of our attorneys have been included on the inaugural Ones to Watch list. In addition, twenty of our attorneys were chosen as Illinois or Indiana Super Lawyers earlier this year, and twelve were chosen as Rising Stars.
