AUGUSTA, Ga., Oct. 24, 2019 — Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession, is excited to announce its newest award initiative – Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.
Using the same Purely Peer Review™ methodology as traditional Best Lawyers recognitions, Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch will target associates who have been in private practice 5-10 years for their outstanding professional excellence.
The inaugural edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch will encompass lawyers currently practicing in the United States and will include research in more than 70 practice areas.
“Best Lawyers was founded in 1981 with the purpose of recognizing extraordinary lawyers in private practice through an exhaustive peer-review process. Nearly 40 years later, we are proud to expand our scope, while maintaining the same methodology, to recognize a diﬀerent demographic of talented and deserving lawyers in Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch,” says Phil Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers.
The Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch methodology process, like the traditional Best Lawyers awards, begins when lawyers are nominated for consideration. Nominations for Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch can be submitted online by the general public, clients, other practicing lawyers, and marketing teams. Nomination submissions are currently open and will remain open through the end of 2019.
The First Edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch is scheduled to be released in August 2020. To learn more about Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, visit www.bestlawyers.com.
