WWHGD’s Construction Law practice was ranked at the top at Tier 1 in the National Rankings.

U.S. News received feedback from 9,514 clients including every Fortune 100 company to evaluate law firms on their expertise. These reputational survey responses were combined with more than 3.1 million evaluations of individual lawyers in these firms in the most recent Best Lawyers survey of leading lawyers. Hard numbers were also used to develop the practice area rankings — data about numbers of lawyers and their previous experience, numbers of clients within different billing ranges, numbers of transactions and litigation matters at different dollar levels; pro-bono commitment, diversity, and other objective data.
The rankings will be featured in the October print issue of U.S. News & World Report.
