Third-party awards, rankings and recognition should not be construed as a client endorsement or as an indication of future performance. Generally, awards, rankings and recognition are based on information prepared and submitted by SECOR.

SECOR was selected as the winner of the awards through a voting process by a panel of judges. The selection of SECOR to receive the awards was based in part on subjective criteria and a limited universe of candidates, and therefore there can be no assurance that a different panel of judges would not have selected other submissions as the winners. Please refer to the respective websites of the sponsors of these awards for important information regarding the criteria for the awards, and the manner in which such awards were determined.

Although SECOR does not pay fees for awards or rankings, there are instances where SECOR will pay for reprints, advertising, or admissions to awards ceremonies after receiving recognition. This represents a conflict of interest for the firm issuing the award or ranking.
