Mark Lanier Named One of “Best Lawyers in America” In Mass Tort Litigation


HOUSTON (May 4, 2007) — Mark Lanier, founder of The Lanier Law Firm, has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2007 edition of The Best Lawyers in America. He was honored for his work in mass tort litigation, and this marks the second consecutive year he has been included in Best Lawyers.

“This recognition, coming from nominations made by other attorneys, is humbling,” says Mr. Lanier. “To receive an honor that shows I have earned the respect of my fellow lawyers is truly rewarding.”

Inclusion in the prestigious Best Lawyers list is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey that has been developed and refined for nearly 25 years. The current edition of Best Lawyers is based on 1.8 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. The entire list can be viewed at

Recognition is nothing new for Mr. Lanier. In 1998 and 2006, The National Law Journal recognized him as one of nation’s Top 10 Trial Attorneys, and designated him one of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America in 2006. Following his victory in the nation’s first Vioxx trial, Mr. Lanier was described in The New York Times as “one of the top civil trial lawyers in America.”

With offices in Houston and New York, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and often innovative solutions.
