Pirkey Barber Earns Seventh Consecutive Trio of Tier 1 Best Law Firms Rankings

Each year since 2015, Pirkey Barber PLLC has stood atop three key intellectual property law rankings for the Austin Metropolitan area in the annual U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” directory.

This trend continues with the publication of the 2021 edition of “Best Law Firms,” where Pirkey Barber again secured Tier 1 placements in the Copyright Law, Intellectual Property Litigation, and Trademark Law categories.

“All of us at Pirkey Barber are proud that we’ve received this triple recognition for seven straight years — not simply because our name appears continuously on this prestigious list, but really because of what it signifies in terms of our relationships with our clients and the legal community,” said Pirkey Barber Management Committee member Chris Kindel. “Achieving this high level of trust from clients and respect from your peers takes hard work, and it constantly has to be earned. To see our talented and dedicated team recognized again with the ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings renews our inspiration to find new ways to innovate and to keep providing clients with the best possible representation.”

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and more. Clients provide feedback on firm practice groups and address responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm.

Among this year’s Best Lawyers listing in Austin are 14 Pirkey Barber attorneys — more than 40% of the firm’s total lawyers.
