U.S. News & World Report ranks the firm one of the top regionally, Firm surpasses 2019 status to its highest ranking in history
Manning, Fulton & Skinner, P.A., one of the longest-lasting law partnerships in North Carolina, was announced today as one of the top firms regionally in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Law Firms” rankings. While the firm has consistently earned the designation, Manning Fulton saw several additional practice areas elevated to top-tier status in the “Best Law Firms” 2020 Edition, released today, making this year’s rankings the highest in firm history.
“We’re honored to be included in this list once again,” said Barry Mann, managing partner at Manning Fulton. “Continuing to rise in the rankings year-over-year is welcome confirmation of that which we already know: our attorneys are at the top of their fields and, as a Firm, we are providing our clients the counsel and expertise they require and deserve.”
This year, Manning Fulton was ranked among the region’s best in a record 23 practice areas. While many of the practice area rankings remained the same from 2019, the firm saw an elevation to Tier 1 for three preexisting practices and added two new practices to its “Best Law Firms” designation overall.
Elevated to top-tier status in 2020 are the firm’s Mergers & Acquisitions, Insurance Law and Employee Benefits (ERISA) practices. Practice areas recognized for the first time in “Best Law Firms” 2020 Edition are Bet-the-Company Litigation, also ranked a Tier 1 practice, and Family Law.
Firms included in the 2020 Edition of “Best Law Firms” are recognized for professional excellence with consistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
