All 13 of the Firm’s U.S. offices were ranked in at least one practice area in the metropolitan rankings, with a total of 125 Dorsey metropolitan practice areas recognized across the nation.
Ranked firms, presented in three tiers, are recognized on a national and regional-based scale. Firms that received a tier designation reflect the highest level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients from the same communities and practice areas.
