DALLAS/HOUSTON – The Bankruptcy and Business Reorganization teams in the Dallas and Houston offices of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP have earned Metropolitan “Tier One” rankings in U.S. News’ and Best Lawyers’ inaugural “Best Law Firms” survey.

Additionally, Gardere earned a national ranking for its work in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law.

“We are very honored by this recognition,” says Deirdre Ruckman, chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy and Business Reorganization group. “We have an exceptional group of attorneys who are dedicated to providing clients the most comprehensive, reliable representation possible.”

Gardere’s bankruptcy group represents debtors, unsecured creditors’ committees and secured lenders in matters including contested Chapter 11 confirmation proceedings, lender liability claims, preferences, fraudulent transfers, subordination, adequate protection, priority claims, debtor-in-possession financing issues, valuation issues, automatic stay and injunctions, and other adversary proceedings before bankruptcy and other courts nationwide.

The full survey appears in the October 2010 edition of U.S. News & World Report magazine and a special section on the USNews.com website. The firm earned national rankings in three additional practice areas and Metropolitan rankings in 14 different practice areas.

To compile the rankings, U.S. News-Best Lawyers surveyed thousands of law firm clients, leading lawyers and law firm managers, partners and associates, marketing officers and recruiting officers. Each were asked what factors they considered vital for clients hiring law firms, for lawyers choosing a firm to which to refer a legal matter, and for lawyers seeking employment.

Survey participants ranked firms based on expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, integrity and whether they would refer a client to the law firm. In addition, information was collected about pro-bono commitment, diversity and the size and complexity of client matters. All of the data were combined into a U.S. News-Best Lawyers overall score for each firm.

Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, an AmLaw 200 firm founded in 1909 and one of the Southwest’s largest full-service law firms, has offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston and Mexico City. Gardere provides legal services to private and public companies and individuals in areas of energy, hospitality, litigation, corporate, tax, government affairs, environmental, labor and employment, intellectual property and financial services.
