U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Law Firms rankings have been released and Stone Pigman was recognized nationally in four practice areas including project finance law, energy law, oil and gas law and venture capital law. The firm was also ranked regionally across a broad spectrum of 42 practice areas, including real estate law, trusts and estates law, as well as corporate law and numerous litigation specialties.

“We are pleased to be recognized by the U.S. News & World Report on both a national and regional level in such a variety of practice areas,” said Michael Walshe, chair of the firm’s management committee. “It demonstrates the legacy our firm has established over the past 90 years, as well as the hard work and dedication our attorneys demonstrate to their clients day in and day out.”
