Faegre Baker Daniels received eight first-tier national rankings in the 2020 edition of U.S. News & World Report – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” survey.

FaegreBD’s practice areas ranked among the top nationally include: appellate, commercial litigation, corporate law, ERISA litigation, intellectual property litigation, real estate litigation, mergers and acquisitions law, and venture capital law.

In the first tier of metropolitan ratings, the firm was ranked in one practice area in Chicago, nine in Colorado, four in Des Moines, three in Fort Wayne, 35 in Indianapolis, 35 in Minneapolis, three in Silicon Valley and one in Washington, D.C.

The “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a meticulous 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, 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 and the first tier in each area includes those firms that scored within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firm.
