U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers have released the 2016 “Best Law Firms” rankings.  Firms included in the 2016 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers.  Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

Gullett Sanford Robinson & Martin (GSRM) ranked in Nashville’s “Tier 1” for Banking and Finance Law; Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law; Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships); Commercial Litigation; Litigation – Bankruptcy; Real Estate Law; and Trusts & Estates Law.

The 2016 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record.  To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US.  Over 17,000 attorneys provided almost 600,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.

Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale.  Receiving a tier designation reflects a high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.
