Best & Flanagan LLP recognized as “Best Lawyers in America” and as a first tier firm in Trust & Estate law.

Five Attorneys from the Firm Also Recognized as “Best Lawyers in America”

Best & Flanagan LLP has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 (copyright 2011 by Woodward/White, Inc., Aiken, SC) as a first tier firm in Trust & Estate law.  In addition, five attorneys have been named to the first tier list.

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.  Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.  Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” The rankings will be listed in an upcoming issue of U.S. News & World Report.

The following practice areas and individual Best & Flanagan attorneys were recognized:

Practice Area: Name:
John A. Burton Trusts and Estates
Robert L. Crosby Trusts and Estates
Thomas B. Heffelfinger Native American Law
E. Joseph LaFave Trusts and Estates

The firm was also recognized for their excellence in Minneapolis in Commercial Litigation, Litigation (Construction), Litigation (Real Estate), and Native American Law.
