November 04, 2015
Overview

MG+M is pleased to announce its inclusion in the U.S. News & World Report “Best Law Firms” 2016 rankings. The publication recognized the firm’s strengths in Commercial Litigation, Corporate Law and Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants in the Boston Metropolitan area, as well as Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants and Product Liability Litigation – Defendants in the New Orleans Metropolitan area.

Law firms are eligible for consideration in the annual “Best Law Firms” rankings by having at least one lawyer voted to the list of “Best Lawyers in America.” In that regard, MG&M has three lawyers who are consistently recognized year-over-year by U.S. News & World Report “Best Lawyers in America:”

  • Boston partner Harry L. Manion III has been listed annually since 2011 in the categories of Commercial Litigation and Corporate Law.
  • Boston partner John B. Manning has been listed annually since 2013 in the Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants category.
  • New Orleans partner Max Swetman has been listed annually since 2011 in the Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants and Product Liability Litigation – Defendants categories.


All firms nominated for the “Best Law Firms” distinction entered into a rigorous evaluation process involving a combination of peer reviews and evaluations, client feedback, and information gathered through implementation of the Law Firm Survey and Law Firm Leaders Survey. Leading lawyers were asked to vote on the expertise, responsiveness, integrity and cost-effectiveness of their peers, while clients provided feedback addressing the practice group’s understanding of business needs, civility, and ultimately whether they would refer another client to the firm.
