TEXAS (September 23, 2006) – Thompson & Knight is pleased to congratulate its 71 attorneys who were selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2007 (Copyright 2006 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).

Published since 1983, The Best Lawyers in America is widely regarded as the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. The Best Lawyers lists, representing 80 specialties in all 50 states and Washington, DC, are compiled through an exhaustive peer-review survey in which thousands of the top lawyers in the U.S. confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current edition is based on more than 1.8 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee for a basic listing, Best Lawyers has gained the respect of the legal profession, the media, and clients as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere. It has received accolades from presidents of the American Bar Association, been frequently featured in the U.S. media, and excerpted in more than 50 major metropolitan newspapers and magazines.
