U.S. News & World Report ranks the firm one of the top regionally,
surpasses 2018 status
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 its largest recognition of practice area rankings in 2019.
“We’re honored to be included in this list once again,” said Barry Mann, managing partner at Manning Fulton. “Moving up in the rankings year-over-year further demonstrates we’re continuing to provide our clients the counsel and expertise they require and deserve.”
This year, Manning Fulton received rankings in 23 practice areas. The firm was top-ranked in 19 different practice areas in 2018; 10 in tier one, four in tier two and five in tier three. While many of the practice area rankings remained the same from 2018, the firm saw an elevation to Tier 1 for two preexisting areas and added four new practices to its “Best Law Firms” designation overall.
The four new practice areas are: Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships), Appellate Practice, Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law, and Insurance Law.
To be included in 2019 “Best Law Firms,” firms must showcase a heightened level of professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. The tiered rankings represent a firm’s unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
Ranked firms are presented in tiers and are listed on a national and/or regional-based scale. Awards were given in 75 national practice areas and 122 metropolitan practice areas.
