WilmerHale Included in List of Top 10 Businesses of the Decade

News
The Boston Business Journal named WilmerHale to its list of the top 10 “Businesses of the Decade” in its most recent issue. The firm is identified as one of 10 area businesses that have distinguished themselves over the past decade.

The article recalls the 2004 merger of Hale and Dorr and Wilmer Cutler Pickering, which formed WilmerHale and is said to have resulted in the creation of a “legal powerhouse.” The article cites an interview with Bill Lee, the firm’s co-managing partner, following the merger announcement in which he notes that you “can’t judge what you do today by what the marketplace is today. You judge what you do today by what the marketplace is in 2010.”

It is 2010 and WilmerHale has found itself on the list of the top 10 area businesses of the decade, which highlights the firm’s performance even in the challenging environment faced by all, including the legal industry.
