Ashby & Geddes is pleased to announce that its attorneys were again selected by their peers for inclusion in the 24th edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. The attorneys and their respective fields of practice recognized include: Steven J. Balick (Litigation – Patent), Stephen E. Jenkins (Commercial Litigation and Corporate Law), and William P.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Almost 87,000 industry leading lawyers are eligible to vote (from around the world) and almost 10 million evaluations were received on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world. For the 2019 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 7.8 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in almost 60,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
