Firms included in the 2019 "Best Law Firms" list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

FordHarrison was recognized at a national level in three practice areas, including Employment Law – Management (Tier 1), Labor Law – Management (Tier 1), and Litigation – Labor & Employment (Tier 1). The firm also received 26 "Metropolitan First-Tier Rankings" for a variety of practice areas in 10 U.S. cities, five "Metropolitan Second-Tier Rankings" in five U.S. cities, and five “Metropolitan Third-Tier Rankings” in five U.S. cities. Earlier this year, Best Lawyers selected 46 FordHarrison attorneys for inclusion in the 2019 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" rankings, for the ninth consecutive year, includes rankings in 75 national practice areas and 122 metropolitan-based practice areas. The firms selected are determined by a rigorous evaluation process that asks clients and peers to evaluate firms based on responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost effectiveness, integrity and civility, as well as whether they would refer a matter to the firm and/or consider the firm a worthy competitor.
