RIDGELAND, Miss., June 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Butler Snow is proud to announce Chambers USA 2016 ranked 41 of the firm’s attorneys as leaders in their fields. 

“We are honored that Chambers USA has recognized our attorneys as leaders in these fields,” said Don Clark, Jr., chairman of Butler Snow. “Chambers USA has remained one of the most credible and respected sources of information for the legal community.”

Rankings for individual lawyers are based in their practice-area(s), and evaluation of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service. A law firm ranking relates to a department of the firm.

Factors and considerations are judged by interviews with those active in the market – mainly clients and other lawyers with whom they work; and by assessing recent work done.

Chambers USA 2016, an independent and objective publication that recognizes only the most respected legal leaders and firms throughout the country, also ranked the firm in the following categories: Commercial (Mississippi), Energy & Natural Resources (Mississippi), Environment (Mississippi), Labor & Development (Mississippi), Litigation: General Commercial (Mississippi), Real Estate (Mississippi), Product Liability & Mass Torts (Nationwide), Banking & Financing (Tennessee), Corporate/M&A (Tennessee), Healthcare (Tennessee), Labor & Employment (Tennessee), Litigation: General Commercial (Tennessee) and Real Estate (Tennessee).
