DALLAS (LAWFUEL) – Haynes and Boone, LLP was once again widely recognized by Chambers USA in its annual law firm rankings. A total of 33 firm lawyers in 19 separate areas of practice were designated by their clients and legal peers as being among the top lawyers in the nation. The firm was also honored for having 16 separate areas of practice where the firm is a leader at the state and national level.

“Chambers uses a stringent and highly regarded methodology to determine the leading lawyers and firms in their given areas of practice,” said Terry Conner, the firm’s managing partner. “Our increasing recognition in this prestigious directory reflects the strength of our firm and our combined practices.

“In particular, we are very pleased that the marketplace continues to recognize the firm’s key practices, including corporate/M&A, bankruptcy/restructuring, litigation, and intellectual property, along with many of our industry strengths such as banking, energy, real estate and technology.”
