Tannenbaum Helpern Receives Top Tier National Ranking In U.S. News – Best Lawyers’ 2017 “Best Law Firms” List

11.17.2016  •  Press Release

New York, NY — Tannenbaum Helpern is proud to announce that its Franchise Law department has received Tier 1 ranking in the national level as well as in the New York Metropolitan Area.

Tannenbaum Helpern’s Franchise Law, Distribution and E-Commerce practice has decades of experience representing clients in the global distribution of goods and services, including franchise programs and systems, non-franchise distribution networks, beverage distribution, joint ventures, mergers & acquisitions, licensing, e-commerce and franchisor-franchisee and supplier-distributor disputes. Practice co-chairs Joel A. Klarreich and Andre R. Jaglom bring eight decades of combined experience in franchising and distribution.

Firms included in the 2017 U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for their professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Firms are evaluated on the following criteria: responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, integrity and civility, as well as whether they would refer a matter to the firm and/or consider the firm a worthy competitor. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the US. For the 2017 edition, over 10,000 attorneys provided nearly 800,000 law firm assessments and roughly 10,000 clients provided more than 90,000 evaluations.
