Wilson Turner Kosmo earned 2021 Best Law Firms rankings in five regional categories from U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®. The peer-review guide recognizes firms for their unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
“Law firms perform a vital role,” said Tim Smart, executive editor at U.S. News, “and ranking them is a key extension of our overall mission to help individuals and companies alike make important decisions.”
Receiving a tier designation reflects the highest level of respect a firm can earn among leading lawyers and clients from the same communities and practice areas. WTK received top San Diego market rankings in five practice areas, including:
- Metropolitan Tier 1 (San Diego)
- Employment Law – Management
- Litigation – Labor & Employment
- Metropolitan Tier 2 (San Diego)
- Labor Law – Management
- Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants
- Product Liability Litigation – Defendants
To earn this distinction, firms must have at least one attorney honored in the corresponding year’s The Best Lawyers in America©, that recognizes just 5% of lawyers practicing across the United States.
Earlier this year, firm partners Michael S. Kalt, Lois M. Kosch, Frederick W. Kosmo, Jr., Meryl C. Maneker, Vickie E. Turner, Claudette G. Wilson, Robin A. Wofford and Leonid M. Zilberman were recognized on the 2021 Best Lawyers list. Maneker and Wilson also received coveted “Lawyer of the Year” designations.
