McAfee & Taft named to 2020 ‘Best Law Firms’ list by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers

November 1, 2019

For the tenth consecutive year, U.S News & World Report and Best Lawyers have named McAfee & Taft to its annual list of “Best Law Firms.” In total, the firm received 66 top-tier rankings across the state of Oklahoma — 49 in the Oklahoma City metropolitan market and 17 in the Tulsa market.

The firm also received eight Metropolitan Tier 2 rankings in Oklahoma City and six in Tulsa, as well as one Metropolitan Tier 3 ranking in Oklahoma City.

According to the publishers, receiving a tier designation reflects the highest level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients from the same communities and practice areas.

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 5% of private practicing attorneys in the United States. In the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, McAfee & Taft was top-ranked in Oklahoma with 107 of its attorneys listed.
