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



Woodburn and Wedge, a Nevada-based independent law firm, has been ranked by U.S. News in its 2011-12 Best Law Firms Rankings as a Tier 1 firm for its work in bankruptcy and creditors rights, corporate law, family law mediation, litigation – bankruptcy, mergers and acquisition law, natural resource law and water law.

This is the second year U.S. News has done these rankings. Last year, Woodburn and Wedge was ranked in the first yier for bankruptcy and creditors rights, corporate law and water law.

The 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.”
