Overall, three Callison Tighe attorneys were honored in real estate law, a major practice area for the firm.

The performance of the firm’s individual attorneys last year led to Callison Tighe’s recognition in the 2015 edition of The Best Law Firms in America in several real estate law categories. The 2016 list has not yet been released.

Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based on nominations from peers or clients. The nominees then undergo an extensive peer evaluation. The resulting rankings are listed in the guide, a joint publication with US News published annually since 1983, as well as online at bestlawyers.com.
