72 Corrs lawyers have been named among Australia’s finest in the Best Lawyers 2012 list, published in today’s Australian Financial Review, with four partners earning the prestigious “Lawyer of the Year” title.

Corrs partner and CEO John W.H Denton said Corrs’ impressive rankings in this year’s report shows the firm is thriving in a challenging economic environment.

“It is satisfying to see so many Corrs lawyers included in the Best Lawyers list, with more than half the partnership recognised for their expertise,” Mr Denton said.

“The range of practice areas in which our lawyers are listed shows the depth and diversity of our people and the quality of our practice.

“Today’s results are a significant achievement, and reward our strong client relationships and commitment to providing world-class legal services,” he said.

This is the fifth year Best Lawyers International has released Australian tables, after an extensive process of peer-review assessments.

Mr Denton explained inclusion in the Best Lawyers list shows the level of respect, professionalism, and expertise our lawyers have earned among their colleagues and peers.

“To be considered one of the legal profession’s best by colleagues and peers is a significant honour, and is what gives the Best Lawyer list its credibility,” he said.

Best Lawyers is the oldest and most highly respected peer review guide to the legal profession worldwide.
