Methodology for The Top 50 Construction Law Firms™

CE developed The Top 50 Construction Law Firms™ ranking by asking hundreds of U.S. construction law firms to complete a survey. The data collected included: 1) 2019 revenues from the firm’s construction practice; 2) number of attorneys in the firm’s construction practice; 3) percentage of firm’s total revenues derived from its construction practice; 4) number of states in which the firm is licensed to practice; 5) year in which the construction practice was established; and 6) The number of AEC clients served during fiscal year 2019. The ranking was determined by an algorithm that weighted the aforementioned factors in descending order of importance. Note: A sizable number of law firms elected not to share revenues, which affected their ranking. For more information, contact
