Firms included in the 2016 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings, for the sixth consecutive year, are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Clients and peers were asked to evaluate firms based on the following criteria: responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, integrity and civility, as well as whether they would refer a matter to the firm and/or consider the firm a worthy competitor.

In addition to the firm’s ranking, RBGG partners have been recognized individually by the annual “Best Lawyers in America” survey.  Partners Sanford Jay Rosen, Michael Bien, Ernest Galvan, Gay Grunfeld, and Jeff Bornstein were selected by their peers for inclusion in the 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America for 2015.  Rosen was selected in the area of Appellate Practice; Bien for Commercial Litigation; Galvan for Appellate Practice and Civil Rights Law; Grunfeld for Employment Law; and Bornstein for Criminal Defense – White Collar.
