HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lanier Law Firm has earned selection as the Law Firm of the Year for plaintiffs' mass tort and class-action litigation in the 2013 "Best Law Firms" survey published by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.
The Houston-based firm, which also maintains offices in New York and California, earned the Law Firm of the Year distinction based on a combination of client feedback about the firm's work and peer nominations from other lawyers in the same practice area.
One of the nation's premier trial firms, The Lanier Law Firm secured the first-ever verdict over the controversial pain medication Vioxx, and the firm's attorneys currently play a lead role in some of the nation's largest mass tort litigation, including cases involving faulty hip implants, dangerous surgical mesh and deadly asbestos.
"This honor speaks not only to the outstanding attorneys in each of our offices, but it also speaks directly to the excellent results they have achieved in making sure companies are held responsible when they have endangered the well-being of our clients," says firm founder Mark Lanier, who recently was named by Texas Super Lawyers magazine as one of Texas' Top 10 attorneys, and previously was recognized by Best Lawyers as the Houston Lawyer of the Year for plaintiffs' mass tort and class-action claims.
The Lanier Law Firm also received National First-Tier and Metropolitan First-Tier rankings for Houston and Los Angeles in the annual Best Law Firms survey. The 2013 list marks the third consecutive year the firm has been highlighted among top law firms in Houston.
The full list of honored firms is available online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/ and appears in U.S. News & World Report's special 2012 Money issue. The list also appears in the separate Best Law Firms publication, which includes rankings for nearly 9,000 firms in 81 distinct practice areas.
With offices in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Palo Alto, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, maritime law, bad faith insurance claims, and sports and entertainment law.
