Bachara Construction Law Group has again been recognized as one of the nation’s top construction law firms by Best Lawyers and U.S. News and World Report. In the “Best Law Firms in America” rankings released this month, BCLG was named as a 2020 Tier 1 Metropolitan Law Firm in both Construction Law and Construction Litigation.

“We are deeply honored by this recognition from our peers,” said Chip Bachara, the firm’s founder and managing partner. “It’s particularly meaningful because we were reviewed in comparison to many larger and longer-established firms.”

Best Lawyers – the preeminent referral guide for lawyers in the U.S. – annually highlights the top law firms in America based upon comprehensive peer and client reviews. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and practice areas for its abilities, professionalism and integrity.

To be eligible for a ranking in the prestigious “Best Law Firms” list, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 5 percent of practicing attorneys in the U.S. BCLG’s founding partner, Chip Bachara, is regularly listed among the nation’s Best Lawyers, and has been named Jacksonville’s Lawyer of the Year for Construction Litigation three times, most recently in 2019.

According to Best Law Firms, the 2021 rankings are based on the highest lawyer and firm participation on record, incorporating 8.3 million evaluations of more than 110,000 individual leading lawyers from more than 22,000 firms.

Ranked firms, presented in three tiers, are recognized on a national and regional-based scale. Firms that received a tier designation reflect the highest level of respect a firm can earn among other leading lawyers and clients from the same communities and practice areas.
