Dear Mr. Christopherson:

Congratulations on having been selected by your peers for inclusion in the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the specialty of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

For over a quarter of a century, Best Lawyers has been regarded — by both the profession and the public —as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States.

Selection to Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprising more than 3.1 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. Because no fee or purchase is required, being listed in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Our annual, advertisement-free publication has been described by The American Lawyer as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

The Best Lawyers in America also reaches the largest and most targeted audience of any peer review listing in the legal profession. Best Lawyers lists appear regularly in Corporate CounselMagazine, which reaches more than 88,000 general counsel.

Excerpts from our lists also appear in The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, New York Magazine, and more than 60 other regional and city magazines around the world, reaching more than 16 million influential readers.

Online, your legal practice area and contact information will be visible to all subscribers of BestLawyers.com.

In addition, the 17,000 attorneys and 2,400 law firms that have linked their web pages to our website will be visible to all visitors to BestLawyers.com, Law.com, and dozens of other websites around the world.

In the past year, our site received more than 33 million page views from over 5 million unique visitors. As you may know, Best Lawyers partnered this year with US. News & World Report, the leading rankings publication in the U.S., to rank U.S. law firms. As a result, the Best Lawyers search engine now also appears on USNews.com, which has 7 million unique visitors each month.

Again, congratulations on being selected by your peers to be included in Best Lawyers.
