Woodburn and Wedge named Tier 1 Firm by U.S. News

By ThisIsReno

SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

Woodburn and Wedge, a Nevada-based independent law firm, has been ranked by U.S. News in their 2010 Best Law Firms Rankings as a Tier 1 firm for their work in bankruptcy and creditors rights, corporate law and water law. The inaugural rankings were tiered rather than ranked sequentially due to many firms being separated by small or insignificant differences in overall score. A Tier 1 ranking includes firms that scored within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firms.

The Best Law Firms Rankings were created to help guide referring lawyers and clients of various types, from the country’s largest companies needing corporate legal advice to individuals needing to get a divorce or write a will. U.S. News combines hard data with peer reviews and client assessments to determine their rankings.

“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. “This experience, coupled with our growing reputation as a leading career information resource, makes these law firm rankings a logical next step.”

The rankings, which are presented in tiers both nationally and by metropolitan area or by state, showcase 8,782 different law firms ranked in one or more of 81 major practice areas. Full data is available online for the law firms that received rankings, from the largest firms in the country to hundreds of one-person and two-person law firms, providing a comprehensive view of the U.S. legal profession that is unprecedented both in the range of firms represented and in the range of qualitative and quantitative data used to develop the rankings.
