Skoler, Abbott & Presser Named to ‘Best Law Firms’

SPRINGFIELD — Skoler, Abbott & Presser, a labor- and employment-law firm serving the Greater Springfield area, has received a Tier 1 ranking in the 2015 edition of U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.” The firm has been recognized with Tier 1 metropolitan designations for Springfield in the practice areas of arbitration; employment law, management; labor law, management; litigation, labor law and employment; and mediation.

The U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in each field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. As firms are often separated by small differences in overall score, a tiering system is used rather than ranking law firms sequentially. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metropolitan region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in The Best Lawyers in America 2015 in that particular practice area and metropolitan area.
