We are honored to announce that Rountree Losee LLP was ranked in the 2020 Edition of the U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings.
Law firms that are included in the “Best Law Firms” rankings are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers.
To be eligible for a ranking, law firms must first have a lawyer recognized in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 5% of private practicing lawyers in the United States. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
This year, Rountree Losee partners Geoffrey Losee and Stephen Coggins were selected by their peers for inclusion in the 26th Edition of the Best Lawyers in America.
Ranked law firms are designated by three tiers and are recognized both nationally and regionally. Law 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.
Rountree Losee has received regional First Tier recognitions for Admiralty & Maritime Law, Commercial Litigation and Real Estate Litigation. In addition, Rountree Losee has four additional Second Tier recognitions for Corporate Law, Bankruptcy Litigation, Intellectual Property Litigation, and Trusts and Estate Litigation.
The 2020 “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on the highest number of participating ﬁrms and client votes received on record. Almost 16,000 lawyers provided more than 1,229,000 law firm assessments, and more than 12,000 clients participated providing 107,000 evaluations.
In addition to their recognition in the Best Lawyers in America rankings, Geoffrey Losee and Stephen Coggins have been recognized as AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell. The Martindale-Hubbell peer rankings are regarded as the “Gold Standard” in attorney rankings, and recognize lawyers for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards. An elite group of approximately 10 percent of all attorneys holds an AV Preeminent Rating.
Congratulations to Geoffrey Losee, Stephen Coggins and the whole Rountree Losee team on achieving the highest possible distinctions awarded by the industry’s oldest and most prestigious legal ranking organizations.
