U.S. News & World Report Best Law Firms 2020 rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, and peer review from leading attorneys in their field. Receiving a tier designation reflects the 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, professionalism and integrity.
To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metropolitan region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in The Best Lawyers in America in that particular practice and metropolitan area. Baker Sterchi attorneys previously recognized in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice areas receiving a tiered ranking in U.S. News & World Report Best Law Firms 2020 include John Cowden, Scott Kreamer, Mike McMullen, Tom Rice, Tom Seigfreid, Tom Sterchi and Kara Trouslot Stubbs in the Kansas City Metropolitan area; and Pete Hoffman, Mike Hunter, John Lord, John Mahon, Steve Sanders, Paul Venker, and Ted Williams in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. The annual Best Lawyers® rankings are based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Included lawyers are recognized by geographic region and practice area(s), and inclusion is an indication that an attorney is well respected by his or her peers for professional success.
