Baker & Daniels Receives Chambers USA Top Ranking in Four Practices

Baker & Daniels LLP has again received the highest ranking in a national report of U.S. law firms and lawyers for four practice areas.

In the ninth annual edition of Chambers USA: A Guide to America's Leading Business Lawyers, Baker & Daniels was rated in the No. 1 category among Indiana law firms for corporate/mergers & acquisitions, labor & employment, general commercial litigation and real estate. In addition, 22 Baker & Daniels lawyers were recognized individually in the 2011 report, 12 of whom earned first rankings in their respective practice areas.

The guide, published by London-based Chambers and Partners, ranks leading firms and lawyers in four practice areas. Ratings are based on the results of in-depth interviews with a vast range of lawyers and their clients (i.e., commercial users of legal services). Greater weighting is given to views of clients.

For this year's U.S. directory, thousands of interviews were conducted by a team of more than 50 full-time researchers. The guiding principle behind Chambers USA is to meet the expectations of the client for legal needs, as well as law firms for referral purposes. The guide is read by industry-leading companies and organizations throughout the U.S. and world.
