Named Top Tier Firm on Best Law Firms List
It is with great pride and excitement that WSHB announces its selection by U.S. News for its 2023 Best Law Firms edition. Recognition by U.S. News for this honor is highly regarded in the legal profession.
“We work hard to secure the best results for our clients in every matter assigned,” said Stewart Reid, firmwide managing partner “It is fitting that our hard work and results are recognized by U.S. News in the prestigious Tier One rating they have bestowed on the firm.”
Tier One rankings are reserved exclusively for law firms that reach the highest level of excellence.
“Our national reputation representing developers and general contractors throughout the nation was pivotal in singling out WSHB’s recognition as a Tier One firm in the specific practice area of construction litigation,” said founding partner Stephen Henning. Henning, who is one of the co-chairs of the CLM National Construction Conference added, “Our lawyers are widely regarded as thought leaders in this area and have blazed new trails and created case law."
To qualify for consideration, a law firm must have at least one attorney listed in the most recent addition of U.S. News Best Lawyers. Law firms are eligible in the practice area and/or metro area in which the firm's "Best Lawyers" practice law. The rankings for final selection of Best Law Firms involves client feedback, data gathered on the Law Firm Survey, the Law Firm Leaders Survey, and Best Lawyers Peer Review.
In addition to construction, WSHB was selected by Best Law Firms in several practice areas. This includes health care, personal injury and insurance matters. The designations truly spanned the coasts, from Seattle, Portland to Tampa.
“Results are what matters, and how we perform day in and day out on the matters we handle nationally is the key to our success,” said Janice Michaels, managing partner of the Las Vegas office of WSHB. “At the same time, it is nice when these types of awards are received validating that our results and hard work are being noticed.”
