Publishers of Corporate Counsel magazine surveyed the general counsel at the world’s top 500 companies to determine which law firms are the “Go-To” firms of these leading companies. These surveys, combined with independent research, identified the leading law firms for these companies in the following practice areas: litigation, corporate transactions/mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, intellectual property, securities, Canada and international. Only 265 firms nationwide have achieved this prestigious recognition.
