The Best Lawyers 2014 Recognizes 18 BPJ attorneys and Lists the Firm #1 in Memphis for Bet-the-Company Litigation
Eighteen lawyers from Burch, Porter & Johnson, PLLC were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2014. The firm was also "Top-Listed" in Tennessee for Professional Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs, and "Top-Listed" in Memphis in several categories: Bet-the-company Litigation, Environmental Law, and Professional Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
