Three Nossaman Attorneys Recognized as "Best Lawyers"
"The Best Lawyers in America" is honoring three Nossaman attorneys: Rob Thornton is recognized for environmental law; Marty Mattes for administrative, communications and energy law; and Kurt Melchior for insurance law. The Best Lawyers database is searchable on Bloomberg Terminals, published in Corporate Counsel magazine, circulated to members of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), and published in regional business journals.
Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. Attorney interviews are conducted over the phone or via email with interviewers posing the question, "If you could not handle a case yourself, to whom would you refer it?" Participants give nominees letter grades A-C which are then converted into numerical equivalents and averaged. Editors make final decisions based both on comments that are made about a nominee during the polling process and on the nominees' numerical grade average.
