Best Lawyers® 2024 Honors 242 Burr Attorneys, Including 17 "Lawyers of the Year"

Firm News

The Best Lawyers in America® — the oldest peer review publication in the legal profession — has recognized 242 Burr attorneys in its 2024 edition. 206 Burr & Forman attorneys were named Best Lawyers in America, with 19 being first-time honorees. The firm also had 36 attorneys recognized as Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch. This designation spotlights exemplary attorneys who have been in private practice for less than 10 years.

Of the 242 attorneys recognized, 17 earned the title of "Lawyer of the Year," a distinction held by very few attorneys nationwide, with only one lawyer recognized for each practice area and location. The Burr attorneys who received this recognition represent each of their practices as well as a robust peer network of more than 350 attorneys in 20 offices that span industries, services, and communities across the Southeast.
