The Troutman Sanders Environmental & Natural Resources practice is pleased to announce that the 2015 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Lawyers edition has awarded the group with a “Tier 1” National ranking for both Environmental Law and Environmental Litigation.

Over the past few years, Troutman Sanders has added several laterals and expanded the national footprint of its environmental team in key markets such as New York, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and Virginia. The team’s already deep experience, coupled with this expansion, has led to the opportunity to represent clients in significant and high-profile matters across the country. As partner Randy Brogdon observed, “It’s a great ranking for a very strong team of environmental lawyers. These rankings reflect the tremendous support our lawyers have been providing to clients across the country. We are pleased that those efforts have been recognized by U.S. News.”

Troutman Sanders received Tier 1 National rankings in a wide variety of areas. See the firm’s press release for the full list of its 2015 rankings. The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading lawyers in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
