Reno Office Receives 16 Tier 1 Practice Group Rankings in “Best Law Firms” 2023

McDonald Carano proudly announces that 16 areas of expertise in our Reno office achieved the highest Tier 1 ranking in the U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” 2023 report. Matt Addison, Managing Partner of our Reno office, explains this recognition “confirms our commitment to provide the highest standards of professional excellence to our clients and underscores our dedication to respectful collegiality among our peers. I congratulate the McDonald Carano attorneys who deliver the exceptional client service and outstanding results that are celebrated by this recognition.” 

“Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a tier system that rewards firms which receive the highest scores in the evaluation process. The ranking methodology involves quantitative and qualitative criteria to evaluate professional excellence, including surveys to garner feedback from clients and peer lawyers. The 16 Tier 1 recognitions highlight McDonald Carano’s highly regarded reputation among clients and peers across a comprehensive range of areas of law. As the “Best Law Firms” report explains, “achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.”
