The Best Lawyers® web site received more than 6.4 million page views with visitors that included: 83 “Fortune 100” companies, 325 “Fortune 500” companies, and 510 “Fortune 1000” companies.

Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers® the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice. More than 40,000 top general counsel also see Best Lawyers in America® lists in ALM publications like Corporate Counsel, while 13 million readers see them in dozens of city and regional publications as well.
