Excellence in the practice of labor law and employment litigation has propelled the Columbia branch of South Carolina’s Fisher Phillips towards continued professional recognition in the form of U.S. News – Best Lawyers’ ratings for 2017.
Fisher Phillips earned “Metropolitan Tier 1 Rankings” for employment and labor law, labor and employment litigation. The law firm has earned a place in every edition of the prestigious rankings since its inception in 2010.
“It is gratifying to see that clients continue to rate our firm and attorneys high,” Roger Quillen, chairman and managing partner, said. “I believe that this is due in great measure to our dedication to superior client service.”
Firms considered for inclusion in the annual “Best Law Firms” list are those demonstrating excellence through ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a “First-Tier” ranking denotes a high-quality law practice with comprehensive legal experience and resources.
The 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America was based on 7.3 million evaluations of lawyers by their peers. Because lawyers are neither required nor allowed to pay to be listed, inclusion is considered a particular honor. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
With over 350 attorneys in 33 offices nationwide, Fisher Phillips has 86 attorneys included in Best Lawyers, considered a benchmark of the industry.
Seventeen of the firm’s other U.S. offices in addition to the Columbia hub received “Metropolitan Tier 1 Rankings” for 2017.
