Tier 1 Best Law Firm in Alaska

U.S. News – Best Lawyers has released the 2016 “Best Law Firms in Alaska – First Tier” metro rankings. Firms included in the 2016 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise. The firm of Manley & Brautigam, P.C. has been named a Tier 1 Metropolitan “Best Law Firm” in four practice areas: Tax Law, Trusts & Estates, Energy Law and Oil & Gas Law in 2016. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America©, which recognizes the top four percent of practicing attorneys in the US. 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 the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.
