The Eckert Seamans group joins the top five percent of lawyers in Pennsylvania in receiving this honor from their peers and others in the legal industry. The basis for selection includes noteworthy verdicts or settlements; creativity or innovation within the legal process; the number of cases tried or transactions handled; years in practice; position within the firm; professional activities; writings and lectures; community involvement; professional degrees or training; and academic and employment background.

The results of the survey will be published in a supplement to Philadelphia Magazine and Pittsburgh Magazine (selected attorneys in Pittsburgh only) as well as the Thomson Reuters Legal annual publication Pennsylvania and Delaware Super Lawyers Magazine.
