The Best Lawyers in America has released the results of its 2023 survey, with 182 BCLP lawyers across our US offices ranked this year, with 30 lawyers listed for the very first time. Of these, 14 attorneys in our Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, Miami, Phoenix and St Louis offices have been named Lawyer of the Year in their practices and areas, and 52 were named ones to watch.

The St Louis Office has seen a sizeable jump in its rankings, with 12 attorneys joining the main list for the first time and 5 named new Ones to Watch. A range of partners there were also listed as Lawyers of the Year, including: Jeffrey J Kalinowski (Litigation: Securities), J Powell Carman (Venture Capital Law), Daniel A Crowe (Litigation, Intellectual property), Keith Kehrer (Nonprofit/Charities Law), Jennifer Stokes (ERISA Law), and Bart Wall (Banking & Finance Law).

The growing Atlanta office has also performed well, with seven lawyers added to the main list and two lawyers listed as Lawyer of the year: Jim Dudukovich (Advertising Law) and Eric P Schroeder (First Amendment Law). The Kansas City office also performed well, with four lawyers joining the Ones to Watch list.

Selection is based on a peer-review survey in which leading lawyers cast votes on the legal abilities of others in their specialties. The 2023 edition is based on more than 9.4 million evaluations and recognizes just over 67,000 attorneys in 147 practice areas.

Best Lawyers’ peer-reviewed listings are now published in more than 70 countries, and their presence has grown substantially in the international legal community.
