The Best Law Firm rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.  Firms who have at least one lawyer who has been recognized in the previous edition of Best Lawyers in a practice area and metro area currently ranked by Best Law Firms are eligible to receive a ranking.  In addition to information provided by the firm, the Best Law Firm submission process includes input from clients and the legal profession.  The first tier in each metropolitan area includes those firms that score within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firms.  Read more about the process here.

We have an internal nationwide approved panel list for all MARKEL claims groups and I'm glad to say that because of my recommendation, you and your firm have made the cut.  I sincerely hope we get the chance to work together again.  It has been a pleasure personally and professionally.
