4 New York legal community, tell us which vendors are the best at what they do. Whether it was a crucial service or a time-saving product, if it is an important aspect to the practice of law, there was a category for you to vote on it. From technology products, to banking and escrow services to dispute resolution, the New York Law Journal Reader Rankings displays the firms who came out on top when it comes to providing you with what is essential to compete in this tough legal market. Recently I had a rather animated conversation about the Reader Rankings with a long-time partner at a large New York City law firm. When he first saw the survey, he was concerned that we were asking lawyers to vote on other lawyers and saw a lot of pitfalls in that. After I spent a good amount of time walking him through the exhaustive process we undertake to execute Reader Rankings and sent him a list of the voting categories, his attitude changed. No worries, he said, The that is 2012 fine. The Reader vendors Rankings: do a wonderful In service Appreciation to the legal community. of the Vendors They really Who do.
