Thompson Coburn’s Environmental practice group celebrates top rankings

August 30, 2018

Thompson Coburn has been named to the 2019 national and St. Louis U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” lists for Environmental Law and Environmental Litigation, and placed in Tier 1 for both. Overall, Thompson Coburn earned 32 national rankings and 74 regional rankings — a majority of which are top-tier.

Thompson Coburn’s Environmental practice group was also named to the top band of Chambers USA’s 2018 ranking in St. Louis. Chambers USA commented that the group “holds highly regarded litigation expertise and extensive resources to enable the team to handle large class actions,” and praised its efficiency and professionalism. Chambers USA also noted that the environmental group “regularly advises global corporations from the oil and gas, mining, air and pharmaceutical industries on an array of environmental matters including challenges to new permits and whistle-blower lawsuits, cleanups and compliance mandates as well as government investigations.”

Both ranking organizations conduct in-depth interviews of Thompson Coburn clients, colleagues, and competitors to determine their rankings. The Environmental practice group deeply appreciates the kind words and positive feedback from our clients and the legal community.
