McDonald Carano proudly announces that 19 areas of expertise in our Reno and Las Vegas offices received the highest “Tier 1” ranking in the 2024 edition of Best Law Firms®. Law firms included in Best Law Firms 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 Best Law Firms explains, “achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.” The 19 Tier 1 practices are listed below.
