November 3, 2014
Dilworth Paxson LLP has been honored with both national and metropolitan rankings by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” for 2015. Announced today, the rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among lawyers and clients in their communities and practice areas.

Dilworth was named a Metropolitan Tier 1 “Best Law Firm” in Philadelphia for four practice areas by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® in 2015. Those practice areas are Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law; Corporate Law; Litigation – Bankruptcy; and Public Finance Law. In addition, Dilworth received a Metropolitan Tier 2 “Best Law Firm” ranking for two practice areas in Philadelphia (Litigation – Antitrust and Trusts & Estates Law), as well as two practice areas in New Jersey (Construction Law and Litigation – Construction).

Dilworth was also honored among law firms across the country, earning a National Tier 2 “Best Law Firm” ranking in the practice of Public Finance Law, as well as a National Tier 3 “Best Law Firm” ranking in Corporate Law as well as Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law.

Over 17,000 attorneys provided nearly 600,000 law firm assessments, and nearly 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.

Search Tips

Our Web site's search function employs a variety of techniques to help you make the most of your queries. In this tips section we use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [antitrust and litigation] is one query, while [antitrust] and [litigation] are two.

  • Exact phrases: Eliminate unnecessary search results by surrounding your search phrase with quotation marks. Placing ["project finance"] in quotes will return specific results and discard additional results that simply have the words "project" and "finance" peppered on a page.
  • Wildcard symbol: If you're not exactly sure how a piece of information you want is phrased, use the following symbol (*) as a word root expander. A search for [child*] will find not only "child," but also results with words like "children" and "childhood."
