Best Law Firms

McAfee & Taft was named to the most recent edition of “Best Law Firms” rankings by U.S News and World Report and Best Lawyers, providing a comprehensive view of the U.S. legal profession that is unprecedented both in the range of firms represented and in the range of qualitative and quantitative data used to develop the rankings.
