The Firm achieves National and Metropolitan First Tier Rankings in Trusts & Estates Law and Trademark Law

New York, NY — Phillips Nizer LLP is pleased to announce their selection by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® as one of the nation’s “Best Law Firms” for 2014.  The New York-headquartered, mid-sized firm achieved First Tier National rankings in Trusts & Estates Law and Trademark Law for the second consecutive year.  In addition, the Firm received a Second Tier National ranking in Copyright Law.

The annual “Best Law Firms” rankings are derived in part from independent evaluations of law firms by clients, as well as attorneys in similar practice areas at other firms based on “expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor.”  Rankings are reflected in tiers for over 100 practice areas and encompass all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia. 

“Accolades such as these are an honor and reinforces Phillips Nizer’s continued commitment to providing our clients with exceptional service and, along the way, garnering respect and admiration from our peers,” said Perry S. Galler, the Firm’s Managing Partner.

The following is a complete list of Phillips Nizer’s U.S. News – Best Lawyers® National and New York City Metropolitan rankings:

Tier 1 - Trusts & Estates Law; Trademark Law
Tier 2 - Copyright Law

Metropolitan Rankings – New York City

The release of the 2014 “Best Law Firms” rankings follows the announcement in August of the nation’s “Best Lawyers”.  Five Phillips Nizer attorneys – Alan Behr, Donald P. Perry, Michael W. Galligan, Elliot J. Wiener and Howard Bindelglass – were recognized in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.
