U.S. News – Best Lawyers® Awards Pirkey Barber Tier 1 Rankings in Trademark Law, Copyright Law and IP Litigation in the Austin Metropolitan Area for the Fourth Consecutive Year

Pirkey Barber is proud to announce that we have once again been honored with a Tier 1 Ranking for the Austin area in the 2018 Edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” by Woodward/White, Inc.

Our firm was awarded the publication’s highest ranking in three practice areas: Trademark Law, Copyright Law, and Litigation – Intellectual Property Law.

Pirkey Barber has received an Austin-area Tier 1 Ranking in at least one Intellectual Property category every year since this area of the law was first recognized by the publication in 2010. This is the fourth consecutive year that our firm has received the Tier 1 Ranking in all three practice areas.

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S.

According to U.S. News, the 2018 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. Over 13,000 attorneys provided more than 1,00,000 law firm assessments, and over 7,500 clients provided more than 65,000 evaluations. Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for its abilities, its professionalism, and its integrity.
