Bradley is pleased to announce that the firm has been named the “Law Firm of the Year” in the area of Construction Law in the 2022 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® "Best Law Firms." Only one firm per legal practice receives this designation, making it particularly significant. Bradley was named “Law Firm of the Year” for Construction Law in the 2020 and 2018 editions as well.
Bradley has held a national Tier 1 ranking in Construction Law since the list’s inception and also earned Tier 1 metropolitan rankings in Construction Law in Birmingham, Charlotte, Houston, Jackson, Nashville, and Washington, D.C. Overall, the firm earned four national Tier 1 rankings and 156 metropolitan Tier 1 rankings across all 10 of its offices.
“Being recognized as the top law firm in the nation for Construction Law is a tremendous honor and is a testament to the exceptional work and high level of client service provided by our attorneys and professional staff,” said David W. Owen, a partner and leader of Bradley’s Construction and Government Contracts practice groups and co-chair of the firm’s Energy team. “We are proud of this continued recognition of our team and Bradley’s numerous other practices ranked in the 2022 ‘Best Law Firms’ list.”
The firm’s Construction Practice Group attorneys advise clients on projects in the United States, Canada and Mexico, as well as in more than 35 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, the Middle East, the Caribbean and South America. The team handles every aspect of large-scale construction projects, from initial contract negotiation and bid preparation to project close-out and dispute resolution. Several of Bradley’s construction lawyers hold degrees in engineering, building science or architecture, and have previous experience working in the construction industry.
The 2022 edition of “Best Law Firms” includes rankings in 75 national practice areas and 127 metropolitan areas. Rankings are based on client evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
