Sherman law firm Siebman, Forrest, Burg & Smith, LLP, has been named to the 2019 Best Law Firms list by the publishers of U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.


Siebman, Forrest, Burg & Smith is being recognized on the annual listing of the country’s top law firms after earning a Regional Tier 1 ranking in Dallas/Fort Worth for commercial litigation and patent litigation. The selection is based on nominations from other attorneys in the Eastern District cities where the firm maintains offices: Sherman, Plano/Dallas, Marshall, Tyler and Lufkin.


Earlier this year, firm founder Clyde M. Siebman earned his sixth consecutive appearance in The Best Lawyers in America based on his work in patent litigation, commercial litigation, copyright law and trademark law. Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Siebman has held the highest AV-Rating from Martindale-Hubbell for more than two decades.


“It is an honor for everyone at the firm to be named to the Best Law Firms list,” Siebman said in a press release. “We take great pride in representing our clients, and we hope our selection to this year’s list is proof that we’re accomplishing what we set out to do when our firm was founded more than 30 years ago.”


Siebman, Forrest, Burg & Smith is a full-service litigation boutique with attorneys that have decades of combined experience representing some of the world’s largest corporations; medium and small businesses; federal, state and local officials; and others.


The firm has served as counsel of record in more than 1,000 cases filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
