Coats Rose Ranked Among 2014 "Best Law Firms" in U.S. by U.S. News-Best Lawyers

HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2013 – Coats Rose Law Firm has been selected as a 2014 U.S. NewsBest Lawyers® “Best Law Firms.” The firm received a National Tier 1 ranking in the Construction Law and Litigation-Construction practice areas.
At Coats Rose, Construction/Surety Law has been a cornerstone of the law firm for more than 25 years with 20-plus attorneys experienced in matters ranging from arbitration of international disputes, single family developments, large vertical commercial construction and renovation, to road and bridge building, industrial facilities, public works and professional sports venues.
The firm’s attorneys played a major part in the elimination of so called “bad faith” causes of action against sureties from each perspective: the claimant, the principal, and the indemnitor. They were instrumental in developing the Texas Residential Construction Liability Act and the Texas Residential Construction Commission Act, participating actively within both to administer claims in residential construction, and frequently represent the surety industry, providing underwriting and claim advice for a wide range of surety products.
Eligibility for “Best Law Firms” is based on the firm’s attorneys who have received equally high peer reviews to be among the Best Lawyers in America Listings. Coats Rose has 16 attorneys on the Best Lawyers list, which is the oldest and most highly-respected peer review guide to the legal profession worldwide.
The rankings will be featured in the 2014 U.S. NewsBest Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” “” stand-alone publication and online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/.
In addition to national recognition, Coats Rose received Metropolitan Tier 1 ranking for Government Relations Practice (Austin); Construction Law, Litigation-Construction, Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants and Real Estate Law (Houston); and Labor Law-Management, and Litigation-Labor & Employment (New Orleans).
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Coats Rose is a business transaction and litigation law firm based in Houston. For more than 25 years, Coats Rose attorneys have worked with clients in construction/surety law, real estate law, commercial litigation of all types, municipal law, public finance, affordable housing, insurance law, labor and employment law, and governmental relations.  Coats Rose is comprised of more than 90 attorneys, with offices in Houston, Clear Lake, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and New Orleans.
