    WASHINGTON DC, March 25, 2013 – Chambers and Partners, publisher of the world’s leading guides to the legal profession, has again recognized Patton Boggs for excellence in Chambers Global 2013: The World’s Leading Lawyers for Business, an annual guide to the world’s best law firms and lawyers.

    Based on highly objective research and extensive interviews of thousands of lawyers and their clients all over the world, Chambers Global ranks exceptional regional practices and individual attorneys through placement in one of six categories, or “Bands,” with Band 1 representing the highest rank.

    This year, Patton Boggs earned four new rankings, including a Band 1 ranking, for one firm practice and three individual attorneys, as indicated below.  The firm’s 2013 Chambers Global rankings are summarized in the following table:

    Band Rankings – Firm Practices

    • Band 1: Qatar: Projects and Energy (New ranking)
