The 2013 edition of Chambers USA, which lists leading law firms and individual lawyers in an extensive range of practice areas, jointly awarded high rankings to nine Brunini attorneys and five of the firm’s practice areas.
Chambers USA ranked five of Brunini’s practices, with the firm’s Commercial Litigation, Energy & Natural Resources and Environment practices receiving the highest ranking possible in the state. The firm’s Real Estate and Corporate/Commercial practice were also highly ranked.
Each year, Chambers USA conducts thousands of interviews and surveys with lawyers and their clients, as well as analyzes its own database resources, to determine rankings for top law firms and individual attorneys. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment and other qualities valued by clients.
“The Brunini firm is truly honored to have its practice groups recognized by our clients as among the best in Mississippi through one of the nation’s most respected legal directories,” said Granville Tate Jr., Chairman of the firm’s Board of Directors. “Our commitment to client service and a long history of legal excellence are hallmarks that set us apart in Mississippi, and those are good reasons to earn the respect of business leaders and peers.”
