McDonald Carano Receives 17 Tier 1
Practice Group Awards
in “Best Law Firms” 2022 Report

McDonald Carano proudly announces that 17 Practice Groups in our Reno and Las Vegas offices have received the prestigious “Tier 1” ranking in the 2022 edition of the “Best Law Firms” report published by U.S. News–Best Lawyers. Law firms included in the “Best Law Firms” report are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Firms that receive the Tier 1 designation reflect the highest level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients from the same communities and practice areas. As the “Best Law Firms” report explains, “achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.”

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must also first have a lawyer recognized in the associated Best Lawyers in America® report, which recognizes only 6% of lawyers practicing in the United States. McDonald Carano also proudly announces that 37 of our lawyers have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America. Seven lawyers also received “Lawyer of the Year” awards and one lawyer received the “Ones to Watch” award. Over the past ten years, a record number of 21 McDonald Carano lawyers have received a total of 43 “Lawyer of the Year” awards in 15 different areas of law, which demonstrates the strength of our state-wide practice groups and the comprehensive scope of our legal expertise.
