We're Blushing!!  Three "Best Law Firm" Rankings for Koning Rubarts
U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers have just named Koning Rubarts LLP as a Tier 1 “Best Law Firm” (Dallas Metropolitan Region) in each of the following areas:

  • Commercial Litigation
  • Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants
  • Litigation – Real Estate.

According to Best Lawyers, their rankings 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.
