About the Biz New Orleans Best Lawyers List

The Biz New Orleans Best Lawyers list is derived from the prestigious 2023 editions of The Best Lawyers in America® and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch. These publications are considered the leading referral guides to the legal profession in the United States. The methodology for selection is deeply rooted in peer review and has remained consistent for over four decades. More than 13 million evaluations from peer lawyers contribute to the compilation of this list, ensuring a comprehensive consensus on professional abilities within specific geographical and legal practice areas.

Nomination Process

In the nomination process, Best Lawyers does not consider in-house lawyers; only those in private practice are eligible. The number of nominations a lawyer receives does not influence their recognition. Lawyers from the previous edition are automatically reconsidered based on positive feedback for continued listing.

Peer Review

The balloting process is strictly within the nominating lawyer’s region and practice area without the ability to choose nominees from the overall pool. Customized ballots reflect the voter’s specific geographic region and practice area(s). During the voting process, lawyers rate nominees on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the most likely to refer a case to the nominee and 1 the least. A “Do Not Know” option is also available. Lawyers cannot vote for themselves; thus, they are omitted from their own ballots.

Verification and Announcement

The verification process ensures that all recognized lawyers’ contact details are accurate. Finally, in the announcement process, recognized lawyers are notified via email and hard-copy letter, and law firms receive a list of their recognized lawyers from Best Lawyers.
