Osborn Maledon ranked in “Best Law Firms” 2019

January 4, 2019

Osborn Maledon has earned 23 first-tier rankings in the 2019 “Best Law Firms” ninth annual edition, sponsored by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®.

Awards recognize achievement in firm practice areas. In total rankings (including second and third tiers), Osborn Maledon ranked nationally in nine practice areas and regionally in 28 practice areas. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients for its abilities, professionalism, and integrity, according to Best Lawyers.

In August, Best Lawyers also honored four Osborn Maledon attorneys as “Lawyers of the Year” in their practice area, an honor only a single lawyer in a practice area in each community receives: Timothy Eckstein, criminal defense, white-collar law; Scott Rodgers, employment law – management; Warren Stapleton, litigation – bankruptcy; and Geoffrey Sturr, “Bet-the-Company” litigation. At the same time, Best Lawyers selected nearly half (23) of the firm’s attorneys for national recognition as “Best Lawyers”. 

The 23 practices recognized with first-tier rankings among firms in the Phoenix area are: antitrust; appellate, arbitration; bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights/insolvency and reorganization; commercial litigation; corporate; criminal defense – white collar; employment law – management; entertainment law (motion pictures & television); ethics and professional responsibility law; legal malpractice law (defendants); litigation (antitrust); litigation (construction); litigation (intellectual property); litigation (labor & employment); litigation (mergers & acquisitions); litigation (patent); litigation (securities); mergers & acquisitions; real estate law; securities/capital markets law; securities regulation; and sports law.
