Press Releases

SEATTLE (August 20, 2020) – Perkins Coie is proud to announce that 358 of its attorneys were recognized by Best Lawyers® 2021. A total of 290 attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® and 68 attorneys were selected for inclusion in the inaugural edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as an important guide to legal excellence. The 27th edition of The Best Lawyers in America® (2021) includes attorneys in practice areas covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 5.5 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. The inaugural edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch recognizes attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in the United States.

Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey and attorneys are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
