Baltimore-based employment and labor law firm Shawe Rosenthal LLP has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report and Best Lawyers in America© as a 2018 “Best Law Firm” for Metropolitan Baltimore in three practice areas: Employment Law – Management; Labor Law – Management; and Litigation – Labor & Employment.
The U.S. News – Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes 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.
To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metropolitan region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is currently recognized in Best Lawyers in that particular practice area and metro. Nine Shawe Rosenthal attorneys were recognized by Best Lawyers in America© earlier this year, including Michael McGuire who was named 2018 Labor Law – Management and 2018 Litigation – Labor and Employment Lawyer of the Year in Baltimore.
“We at Shawe Rosenthal are truly honored to be named in Best Lawyers ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings,” says the firm’s Co-Managing Partner, Stephen D. Shawe. “This recognition is a testament to the professional excellence of our firm, which is particularly noteworthy this year as we celebrate our 70th anniversary.”
For the U.S. News - Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" rankings, clients and lawyers were asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, whether they would refer another client or a matter to the firm, and – in the case of lawyers – whether they consider the firm a worthy competitor. Law firms were asked to provide demographic and background information on the firm and attorneys, as well as other data that speaks to the strengths of the firm’s practice areas.
All of the quantitative and qualitative data were combined into an overall "Best Law Firms" score for each firm considered. This data was then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and at the national level.
