CHICAGO - Aug. 17, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Cheng Cohen, the franchise industry's premier full service boutique law firm, announced today that founding partners, Amy Cheng and Fredric A. Cohen, were named to the 22nd edition of The Best Lawyers in America. Based on extensive survey feedback from clients and peers, Amy and Ric have been recognized for professional excellence in franchise law.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, and is universally regarded as a definitive guide to legal excellence. Every year, approximately 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition.
