In announcing the list, Lawdragon stated the following about its research process:
"We've researched this guide for the past two years as we published our directory to the lawyers who represent employers. The plaintiff employment firms are led by Outten & Golden, which claims 17 slots on this year's inaugural guide – thanks in part to a nationwide expansion over the past few years."
"The 500 were chosen in our research-driven, journalistic process that vets the views of peers and competitors, and recognized those who are winning big for workers just 10 or so years into practice, alongside an esteemed lawyer or two who've been fighting the battle for more than 50 years."
In response to Lawdragon's announcement, Managing Partner Wayne N. Outten singled out his colleagues for their "pursuit of excellence" in serving the firm's clients. "I am very pleased that Lawdragon has recognized so many of our lawyers for the excellent work they do each and every day."
