Fortune magazine names McAfee & Taft to 2013 list of ‘Top Ranked Law Firms’ in U.S.

December 12, 2012

McAfee & Taft was selected for Fortune magazine’s 2013 list of “Top Ranked Law Firms” in the United States. Editors asked LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell® to leverage its comprehensive database of 1 million lawyers and firms in more than 160 countries to identify U.S. law firms of 21 or more attorneys, where at least one out of three of their lawyers achieved the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating. Of McAfee & Taft’s 180 attorneys, 103 — or 57 percent — are top-rated, more than any other law firm in Oklahoma.

McAfee & Taft attorneys rated as AV Preeminent are listed here.

More than 254,000 law firms were considered in the selection process, but less than one-half of one percent of firms across the nation made the grade.

An attorney’s AV Preeminent rating indicates the highest level of ethical standards and legal ability, as determined by the attorney’s peers of the bar and judiciary, in a confidential poll. The legal community members who provide the ratings have experience working with the attorney under review.

A special section featuring the 2013 U.S. Top Ranked Law Firms will appear in Fortune‘s “2013 Investors Guide” (to be published December 24, 2012), as well as the January 2013 editions of The American Lawyer and Corporate Counsel. It also appears on LAW.COM and
