Best Law Firms

DECEMBER 2022 – For the 13th straight year, Icard Merrill has been named to the list of “Best Law Firms” by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®. The firm has achieved this ranking every year since the program started in 2010. The 2023 edition recognizes the most elite firms across the nation, identified for their professional excellence with consistently positive feedback from clients and peers.

Reviews submitted by Icard Merrill’s clients reflect the exceptional level of legal services the firm provides, saying:

“We have used Icard, Merrill, Cullis, Timm, Furen & Ginsburg for over 20 years. Their work has always been excellent, and they always produced the optimum results.”

 “Icard Merrill is an absolutely outstanding firm. Every interaction with them has been prompt and professional. They can be completely trusted.”

“Our firm has used Icard Merrill for numerous real property transactions in the State of Florida. While the basic context of the work has been in real estate, the areas covered have included detailed title work (including correction of prior transactions by other parties), land swaps, special transactions (including solar farms), and a complex swap of easement interests among multiple parties. Their counsel has not only been invaluable but also has been crafted to provide an explanation of outstanding issues and potential solutions that company officials were able to grasp without additional, more complex explanations.”

In addition, Icard Merrill is regionally ranked in seven practice areas: Tier 1 in Construction, Family Law, Land Use & Zoning, Real Estate Law, and Real Estate Litigation; Tier 2 in Land Use & Zoning Litigation; and Tier 3 in Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

The Best Law Firms rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process. To produce the 13th edition, the Best Lawyers research team analyzed almost 124,000 client responses, 12.2 million evaluations of more than 115,000 lawyers from more than 22,000 firms and conducted hundreds of interviews with law firm leaders.
