Wilkinson Barker Knauer Named “Law Firm of the Year” in the Communications Law Category by U.S. News-Best Lawyers

Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP has been named “Law Firm of the Year” in the Communications Law category for 2011-2012 by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers, who together publish an annual listing of the “Best Law Firms” in the United States. U.S. News and Best Lawyers conduct an extensive survey each year and rank over 9,000 firms, both nationally and in 171 metropolitan areas. Only one law firm in each of 75 nationally recognized practice areas is chosen to be “Law Firm of the Year.”

According to U.S. News – Best Lawyers®, Wilkinson Barker’s selection was based in part on “a combination of high performance on surveys of clients about [the] firm’s work in the practice area [and] the high regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for [the] firm.” More information can be found at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/lfoty.aspx.
