Publication gives 18 of the firm’s practice areas top rankings

The 2021 edition of Chambers USA® recognized 48 of Frost Brown Todd’s (FBT) attorneys and 18 of the firm’s practice areas in various markets across the firms footprint. The publication is produced by Chambers and Partners® and ranks attorneys and their practices based on peer and client review.

The awards are divided up into several categories. Firms and individual attorneys are ranked in Bands 1 through 6, with Band 1 being the highest. This year FBT was included in the inaugural listing for Energy & Natural Resources in Pennsylvania.

For individual rankings, there are a series of further classifications. A “Senior Statesperson” is a lawyer who no longer works hands-on with the same intensity but continues close relationships with major clients and is integral to the firm’s success.
