Bercow Radell Fernandez Larkin & Tapanes Ranks in Top Tiers in Land Use & Zoning Law

November 7, 2022

Miami, FL – Bercow Radell Fernandez Larkin & Tapanes is once again ranked in the top tier in Miami for Land Use & Zoning Law as well as in Real Estate Law in the U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” 2023 edition. The firm successfully placed in the second tier nationally in Land Use & Zoning law.

The annual list highlights firms who are recognized by their clients and peers for consistent professional excellence. According to U.S. News & World Report / Best Lawyers, achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

Ranked firms are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.

For the 2023 “Best Law Firms” list, the approach for the initiative remained the same as in previous years. Clients were asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm.

To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America®, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Earlier this year, shareholders Jeffrey Bercow, Ben Fernandez, Michael Larkin and Partners Graham Penn and Daniel Espino were recognized in The Best Lawyers in America 2023 edition for their work in land use and zoning law.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Worldwide, more than 113,000 industry leading lawyers are eligible to vote. For the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, more than 12.2 million votes were analyzed to identify the top legal talent, as identified by their peers.
