Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch released its 2022 edition on August 19, 2021, continuing a 30-year tradition and highlighting outstanding attorneys who are earlier in their careers.
The Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch awards are based on peer review. Lawyers must be nominated, and along with attorneys recognized in the traditional Best Lawyers publication, all nominated lawyers provide feedback on candidates. Once the feedback is reviewed, Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch conducts an eligibility check and publishes the results.
To be eligible for Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, attorneys must have been in private practice for 5 to 9 years or re-entering private practice after extended sabbaticals. They also need to be in good standing with their local bar associations. Awards are based on set areas of expertise, such as business litigation and family law.
