This year, the Top Boutiques supplement will honor specialty firms in California and accept submissions from previous winners to be on the list. In earlier years, the supplement honored firms only once.
The supplement will recognize firms of any size that focus on one specialty. At least 90 percent of the firm's lawyers (including partners, associates and counsel) must devote 100 percent of their practice to this specialty. We will recognize any specialty (e.g. IP, L&E, white-collar defense, etc. Litigation and corporate are also acceptable categories). In selecting these firms, we will look at the richness of history of the firm's practice, the current book of cases, and growth in recent years.
We understand many matters are sensitive; however, you must provide the names of matters and clients for all work to be considered for this nomination. Please mark information that is confidential. We will only contact clients for interviews if the nominee is selected to the list.
No extensions to the deadline will be granted.
The lawyers must be California Bar members in good standing and the firms must be based in California although their work can be anywhere in the world.
