Best Law Firm’s Methodology

This year’s rankings “mark the first year that Best Lawyers has released the bellwether listings independently on a dedicated website: www.bestlawfirms.com.” (4)

The Best Law Firms 2024 rankings follow its “methodology that relies on qualitative and quantitative data on legal skillset, achievements and client successes collected through a submission process managed by Best Lawyers.” (5)

Best Law Firms collects client and lawyer evaluations and peer reviews from leading attorneys in their noted fields. It also reviews supplementary information provided by law firms during the formal submission process.

W&L Clients Come First

Since our founding in the mid 1980s, Weitz & Luxenberg has had one ultimate goal: to help regular people injured by the choices and actions of others.

These others are typically large national and multinational corporations. They include industrial conglomerates, pharmaceutical giants, manufacturers of medical devices and consumer products, and the multitude of hazardous and toxic waste polluters. One of our most notable achievements is the work we began in the 1980s — and continue today — for our clients exposed to asbestos.

We are committed to standing up to big violators armed with highly established legal teams dedicated to fighting their battles. Under our watch, we will hold these violators accountable.
