Top 25 National Firms General Counsel’s Rankings

from Second Quarter 2012
Corporate Board Member

The relationship between internal and external counsel can be at times collegial, at times symbiotic, and at times, a challenge. Most often, however, there is healthy respect and admiration between the two, which brings us to the list featured here.

These 25 firms were voted on by general counsel from U.S. public companies in the Corporate Board Member/FTI Consulting 2012 Law in the Boardroom survey as the national firms they would most likely retain for a variety of legal matters. Hats off to each of these top-drawer firms, many of which continue to gain the respect of their peers in the legal community year in and year out.
