U.S. News & World Report Ranks Faegre Baker Daniels Nationally in 'Best Law Firms' Survey

Faegre Baker Daniels received 10 first-tier national rankings in the 2015 "Best Law Firms" survey by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers. FaegreBD's practice areas ranked among the top nationally are commercial litigation, construction law, construction litigation, corporate law, franchise law, mass tort litigation/class actions-defendants, mergers and acquisitions law, real estate litigation, public finance law and venture capital law.

In the first tier of metropolitan ratings, the firm was ranked in 18 practice areas in Colorado, six in Fort Wayne, 39 in Indianapolis, 43 in Minneapolis and one in South Bend and Des Moines.

The "Best Law Firms" rankings are based on a rigorous research process that includes surveys of peer attorneys and client evaluations. Clients rate firms based on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of business needs, cost-effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer another client to the firm. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America©, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S.

Ranked firms are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. According to Best Lawyers, "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."
