Novack and Macey is pleased to announce its 2020 U.S. News & World Report – Best Lawyers® "Best Law Firms" Tier 1 ranking in the Nation for Real Estate Litigation and its Tier 1 ranking in Chicago for Commercial Litigation.

Firms included in the 2020 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. Clients have praised the firm by saying, “Novack and Macey does a tremendous job of representing their client. Their staff and knowledge is second to none.” And, “Novack and Macey are the opposite of a firm that takes the "scorched earth" approach. They take the time to get to know their client, its issues, preference and preferred outcome and then work to get to that point at the most economical and efficient manner possible.” 

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must first have a lawyer recognized on the Best Lawyers in America© list, which recognizes the top 5% of private practicing lawyers in the United States. Earlier this year, Novack and Macey attorneys Stephen Novack, Eric N. Macey, Donald A. Tarkington, Stephen J. Siegel, Monte L. Mann and Richard G. Douglass were selected by their peers to this list for their work in Commercial Litigation, Real Estate Litigation and Legal Malpractice Law. Eric Macey was named “Lawyer of the Year” for Real Estate Litigation in Chicago, an honor given to only one attorney in each metropolitan area.

The specific rankings are:

  • National - Tier 1 
    Real Estate Litigation
  • Metropolitan, Chicago - Tier 1 
    Commercial Litigation
    Real Estate Litigation
  • Metropolitan, Chicago - Tier 2 
    Legal Malpractice Law - Defendants

The 2020 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and the highest number of client ballots on record. Over 16,000 attorneys provided more than 1,229,000 law firm assessments, and over 12,000 clients provided more than 107,000 evaluations.
