Chambers and Partners® has recognized 56 of Frost Brown Todd’s attorneys and 15 of the firm’s practice areas across the region in the 2019 edition of Chambers USA®, a publication ranking attorneys and their practices based on peer and client review.

Firms and individual attorneys are ranked in Bands 1 through 6, with Band 1 being the highest. For individual rankings, there are a series of further classifications: A “Star” ranking is granted to an attorney who receives exceptional recommendations. This ranking is noted as being above Band 1. The “Up and Coming” ranking is given to attorneys who have not yet established a reputation but are driving their firm’s growth. An “Associate-to-Watch” is a senior associate who is recognized for his or her work in the background of major deals. An “Eminent Practitioner” is a highly influential lawyer in a practice area who, due to managerial or client relationship commitments, is less active in day-to-day work, but remains a key player on the team. A “Senior Statesperson” is a lawyer who no longer works hands-on with the same intensity but continues close relationships with major clients and is integral to the firm’s success. A “Recognized Practitioner” handles notable matters and are on the Chambers’ “research radar,” but is not included in the printed version of the guide.
