According to U.S. News – Best Lawyers, firms included in the 2014 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

    National Tier 3

    Metropolitan Tier 1
        Los Angeles
            Energy Law

“Glaser Weil’s 25 years as a powerhouse law firm are reflected in these rankings, which span multiple areas of law and reflect our successes on both the local and national levels,” said Glaser Weil Managing Partner Peter Weil.

"To be recognized on both the local and national levels for our entertainment law practice reflects the expertise and high level of service our small but very sophisticated team of entertainment lawyers provides to our clients,” added Barbara M. Rubin, partner and head of the Firm’s Entertainment Department.

The 2014 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. More than 12,000 attorneys provided more than 330,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,000 clients provided close to 20,000 evaluations. In addition, to provide personal insight, a new Law Firm Leaders Survey was implemented in the decision-making process.

U.S. News has provided the public with accurate and in-depth rankings on a wide range of institutions for more than two decades — including its competitive Best Law Schools rankings.
