According to this nationwide ranking, Pierce Atwood ranks first among Maine law firms for total number of listed attorneys in the state.  The firm was also “top-listed” in Maine (meaning it had the greatest number of attorneys listed in a particular category) in several practice areas including commercial litigation, bet-the-company litigation, litigation-ERISA, energy law, environmental law, mass-tort class action defense, banking and finance law, intellectual property law, real estate law, tax law and trademark law. Noteworthy mention: Pierce Atwood’s Ralph Lancaster has been listed in every edition since its founding.   

First published in 1983, Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas.  Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Pierce Atwood LLP, a leading New England law firm, has 140 attorneys who serve regional, national and international clients from offices in Portland and Augusta, Maine; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Boston, Massachusetts; Providence, Rhode Island; Stockholm, Sweden; and Washington, DC.  Follow us on Twitter @PierceAtwoodLLP.
