Forbes magazine's December 2012 issue, and the January 2013 issues of both The American Lawyer magazine and Corporate Counsel magazine, list Stein Sperling among the 2013 Top Ranked Law Firms in the United States. To compile their list, the publications consulted LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell®, an "authoritative source for information about U.S. Lawyers since 1868." From Martindale's database of over 1 million lawyers, Top Ranked Law Firms were named based on two criteria: having 10 or more attorneys in the firm and one-third of those attorneys achieving AV Preeminent® Peer Review Ratings. Forbes, The American Lawyer and Corporate Counsel considered more than 254,000 law firms across the country, but less than one-half of one percent of that group made the list.

An AV Preeminent® Peer Review Rating indicates that a lawyer has been deemed by his or her peers as having demonstrated the highest level of ethical standards and legal ability. Sixteen of Stein Sperling's attorneys have achieved AV Preeminent status, including 12 principals (Millard Bennett, David  De Jong, Jolie Deutschman, David Driscoll, Ann Jakabcin, Alexia McClure, Jeff Schwaber, Karen Shapiro, Don Sperling, Paul Stein, David Torchinsky and Steve Widdes) and five of counsel (Kevin Fay, Alan Kerxton, Darla McClure and Bill Roberge).
