U.S. News Names Larkin Hoffman "Best Law Firm" for 2020


Larkin Hoffman has been named a ‘Best Law Firm’ by U.S. News for 2020. The firm’s franchise and land use practices again received national recognition and were ranked in the first tier regionally.  The firm’s construction practice also received a high regional ranking which comes on the heels of being named one of the Top 50 Construction Law Firms in the US by Construction Executive magazine.

Six of the firm’s other practices were ranked in regional categories. The categories include environmental law, eminent domain and condemnation law, land use and zoning litigation, tax litigation, tax law and municipal law.

Earlier this year, 12 Larkin Hoffman attorneys were recognized as ‘Best Lawyers in America’ for 2020 including Chuck Modell, who was also named “Lawyer of the Year” for Minneapolis franchise law. A single attorney is recognized in each practice area within a designated metropolitan area each year.  It is the third time that Chuck has received this recognition. 

The U.S. News Best Law Firm rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes thousands of clients, highly skilled lawyers and law firm representatives. Reviewers combine quantitative and qualitative data into an overall score for each firm. The scores are then used to compare firms locally and nationally.
