DALLAS (November 1, 2011) – Buether Joe & Carpenter is pleased to announce that the firm has received recognition in the prestigious 2011-2012 U.S. News–Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings. BJC received a Tier 2 ranking in the Dallas metropolitan area in the practice areas of patent and intellectual property litigation.
The U.S. News–Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. An unprecedented amount of data was collected in the project’s second year, and this combined data resulted in the 2011-2012 “Best Law Firms” rankings. The rankings incorporate the 3.9 million evaluations of 41,284 individual leading lawyers collected by Best Lawyers® in its most recent annual survey.
“We are gratified to have been recognized in the Best Law Firms ranking,” commented Eric Buether, the CEO of Buether, Joe & Carpenter. “To have achieved such recognition after forming our law firm only 18 months ago is a testament to the skill and dedication of our attorneys and staff.” Mr. Buether recently earned the recognition of being listed in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America for the second year in a row.
“U.S News has more than two decades of experience in providing the public with the most accurate and in-depth rankings of a wide range of institutions, including our Best Law Schools rankings,” says Tim Smart, Executive Editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law schools rankings.”
“Best Lawyers was very pleased with the reaction from the legal profession and from legal clients to the first edition of the “Best Law Firms” rankings,” says Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers. “By combining hard data with peer reviews, and client assessments, we continue to believe that we are providing clients with the most thorough, accurate, and helpful rankings of law firms ever developed.
