U.S. News & World Report has announced that it awarded Nelson Hardiman LLP a Tier 1 ranking in Healthcare Law in its 2023 Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” report. The rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in the field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.

The 2023 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” recognizes the most elite firms across the nation, identified for their professional excellence as evidence by consistently positive feedback from clients and peers. To become eligible for a “Best Law Firms” ranking, at least one lawyer at the firm must be recognized in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, an exclusive award presented to only the top 5% of lawyers in the United States.

“The legal community views ‘Best Law Firms’ rankings as the top marker of excellence for the reason that our methodology is comprehensive, rigorous and historically proven,” noted CEO of Best Lawyers Phillip Greer. To produce the 13th edition, the Best Lawyers research team analyzed almost 124,000 client responses, 12.2 million evaluations of more than 115,000 lawyers from more than 22,000 firms and conducted hundreds of interviews with law firm leaders.

Achieving a tiered ranking in U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. Ranked firms, presented in three tiers, are recognized on a national and regional-based scale. All three tier rankings represent the highest-level feedback a firm can receive and demonstrate the best in the legal industry across the United States.

Nelson Hardiman managing partner Harry Nelson commented on the recognition by U.S. News & World Report: “We are honored by the recognition from U.S. News & World Report, but what matters most to us is the underlying vote of confidence from clients and colleagues who place their trust in us. Nothing motivates us more than the feedback that we are a singular resource for the healthcare and life science industry. Nelson Hardiman will continue to set the bar higher when it comes to advising and representing our clients.”
