Published annually, the Ranking Arizona publication is the largest business opinion poll taken in Arizona. Each category in Ranking Arizona is selected by the staff of AZ Big Media for the general public to vote on and is based on feedback from the state's business community regarding their interests and leisure activities. Voters, which include residents and business leaders throughout Arizona, participated in an online opinion poll provided by the official Ranking Arizona website. More than 200,000 businesses in more than 250 categories were considered for ranking. Ranking Arizona is based purely on opinion. Participants who voted were asked to base their opinions on quality of product, service, and people, and not merely the company’s revenue and number of employees.

“Snell & Wilmer remains committed to serving the region and tailoring our services to support the evolving needs of our clients,” said Phoenix Office Managing Partner, Mike Donahey. “We are a firm devoted to providing excellent client service, building trusted relationships and helping our communities grow and thrive.”
