Chicago, IL

Jim Franczek has been named the Chicago Best Lawyers’ Employment Law - Management Lawyer of the Year for 2012.

Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities.  What makes this recognition particularly impressive is the fact that only one lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the Lawyer of the Year.  Best Lawyers has recognized Jim as its first Chicago Labor and Employment Lawyer of Year, a distinguished honor essentially bestowed on Jim by his own peers in the legal community through the Best Lawyers’ research process.

This recognition falls on the heels of the recent honor the firm received as 2011 Illinois - Labor & Employment Law Firm of the Year Award by Global Law Experts (GLE).  GLE confirmed that Jim singlehandedly received the most nominations of any lawyer in the United States in the field of Labor & Employment during GLE’s extensive nomination and research process.

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 18th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2012) is based on more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyers’ surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
