Keesal, Young & Logan officially ranked nationally and regionally among the 2011 Best Law Firms—the inaugural issue of a highly anticipated annual analysis released by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers.

The inaugural rankings, which are presented in tiers both nationally and by metropolitan area or by state, showcase 8,782 different law firms ranking in one or more of 81 major practice areas. The analysis provides a comprehensive view of the U.S. legal profession that is unprecedented both in the range of firms represented and in the range of qualitative data used to develop the ranking.

KYL is honored to have ranked highly in the first of such publications—nationally in Tier 2 for Admiralty & Maritime Law. Metropolitan rankings for KYL included Tier 1 placements in Alaska, Orange County and San Francisco, also for Admiralty & Maritime Law.
