Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard LLP Recognized as a Tier 1 National Firm for Entertainment Law – Motion Pictures & Television by U.S. News-Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” for 2018

Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard LLP is proud to announce it has been named a Tier 1 national firm for Entertainment Law – Motion Pictures & Television by U.S. News Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” for 2018. CDAS is one of only 25 firms to receive this honor. Review the full list here.

U.S. News determines its “Best Law Firms” based on client and peer feedback on whether a firm is: knowledgeable; responsive; civil; cost-effective; understanding of a client’s needs; and likely to be recommended to another client. The selection panel gave a score to each firm and grouped them in tiers, with Tier 1 being the highest. U.S. News said that it uses a tier system because many of the top-scoring law firms are separated by small margins. U.S. News ranked law firms in 186 metropolitan areas across the U.S. and 122 areas of practice.

Earlier in the year, six CDAS partners were named to the 2018 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®. These partners were nominated and selected by their peers within their practice areas.
