Leading Lawyers is a division of Law Bulletin Media. Law Bulletin Media is a diversified print and electronic information company that has been serving the Chicago legal and business communities since 1854. Flagship of the privately held corporation is the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, the oldest daily courts newspaper in the country. From its modest beginning in 1854 as a daily reporter of courthouse information, the company has grown into a leading Midwestern information provider in the legal, real estate and financial fields. Each day law firms and corporations rely on Law Bulletin Media's on-line information service, the Law Bulletin Information Network, for data and news they cannot get elsewhere. In addition to its numerous databases, many of the company's publications are also available on-line. Publications include newspapers, magazines, newsletters, periodicals, web sites, directories and books. Most of the products are printed at the company's downtown Chicago headquarters and commercial printing plant. Leading Lawyers has grown out of the extensive legal experience Law Bulletin Media provides, and is the most trusted and respected resource to locate reputable, experienced lawyers. The practice of law is unique in that you truly need to be a lawyer to judge the quality, experience and reputation of other lawyers. Leading Lawyers surveys lawyers, asking them which of their peers, indeed their competitors, they would recommend to a family member or friend if they could not take a case within their area of law or geographic region. To maintain the quality and credibility of the survey, lawyers cannot nominate themselves or anyone at their own law firm. Based upon survey nominations and approval by our Advisory Board, only the top lawyers are nominated and eligible for membership in Leading Lawyers. Starting in Illinois and eventually worldwide, Leading Lawyers provides extensive profiles of the most respected and experienced lawyers to assist you in your search for a highly qualified lawyer.
