Publication gives top rankings to multiple practice areas

The 2023 edition of Chambers USA® recognized 61 of Frost Brown Todd’s (FBT) attorneys and 11 of the firm’s practice areas. Produced by Chambers and Partners, the publication ranks attorneys and their practices based on peer and client reviews, dividing the awards up into several categories. Firms and individual attorneys are ranked in Bands 1 through 6, with Band 1 being the highest.

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. “Up-and-Coming” indicates lawyers who are driving their firm’s growth while still building their reputation, and “Associates to Watch” refers to senior associates who are recognized for their supporting work on major deals.

The FBT attorneys recently selected for ranking in the 2023 edition of Chambers USA® include:
