The search for the best of the best is over
The annual Best of Legal Directorate awards recognize the top-rated local firms in each U.S. city. Companies that have won a Best of Legal Directorate award have a special ribbon on their profile.
Firms with a commitment to delivering the highest level of client satisfaction genuinely do stand apart from their peers, and it’s our job to make them easy to find. Nevertheless, their achievement is particularly significant as standing out from the competition has never been more difficult thanks to the far-reaching potential of emerging technologies.
That’s why we’ve created a business surveillance analytic program, which uses natural language and machine learning techniques to sift through ratings/reviews across hundreds of thousands of verified sources, along with reports on complaints, trust, and business reputation history. We track over 500,000+ blogs, forums, consumer review portals, and social media accounts to help our readers narrow their consideration set.
Only a fraction of professionals made our list, and even smaller numbers are featured as one of the best companies across the country. To give you a glimpse of behind the scene work, here are some figures. To date, we've analyzed over 6 million authentic opinions in over 50 business categories in each US city. Highest scoring results are then taken as candidate targets for our AI-powered Business Intelligence platform, which inspects best professionals using our 150 proprietary data points. Legal Directorate currently monitors over 200 thousand small businesses nationwide. Out of that number, only 15 000 made it to the first page of their category.
And finally, only a fraction of those highly qualified professionals have met strict eligibility requirements to make it to our featured list of 1000 companies across all categories, which is a truly astonishing feat considering the unsolicited nature of the recognition.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you choose the award winners?
Legal Directorate's award winners are chosen through a rigorous evaluation process using our 150 point inspection. For each category, we assess the features that we believe are most important to our visitors. Legal Directorate's general rating methodology consider:
- The steady flow of reviews
- The credibility of the reviewers
- The rating distribution consistency with statistical formulas
- The quantity and quality of verifiable information about the activities of the business
- Licenses, accreditations and rewards
- The lack of complaints about the company's activities in the public registers
... and many other features.
Who selects the awards?
We pride ourselves on unmatched technical and market expertise, which results in our AI’s ability to highlight stellar businesses among the competition, so most of the work is performed by our automated platform. However, there is no such thing as the perfect algorithm, so our team of experts — based all across the country — makes the designation’s final decision.
Can companies pay to get a Best-Of Award?
No. Our research team members are solely responsible for approving or rejecting participants based on comprehensive scoring formulas that assess each business's essential features, weighting them according to their importance to consumers. That's why only the best professionals can get our “Best-Of” designation. No company can "buy" an award.
How can I view past winners?
Our “Best-Of” award winners from previous years are still live, and we encourage companies to continue to celebrate their wins from this year and past years.
