Best Lawyers in America Names 29 Archer Attorneys in 2022 Rankings

One Archer Attorney Honored as “Lawyer of the Year”

August 19, 2021

Archer is pleased to announce that 21 attorneys have been included in the 2022 edition of The Best Lawyers in America. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.

Best Lawyers® has published their list for over three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals, because it is based on over five million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. Lawyers are selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America based exclusively on merit. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional experience, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.

In addition to these rankings, Best Lawyers recognized one Archer attorney as “Lawyer of the Year.” Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, professionalism and integrity. Only one lawyer in a specific practice area and location is honored with a “Lawyer of the Year” designation.

Best Lawyers also recognized eight Archer attorneys as “Ones to Watch.” These awards are recognitions given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States. The “Ones to Watch” recipients typically have been in practice for 5-9 years.
