WilmerHale has been named to NYSE Governance Services and FTI Consulting's "America's Top Corporate Law Firms," a comprehensive ranking of the top 25 firms in the nation. Results are based on three national law firm surveys: National Law Journal's Top 75, the American Law Top 75 and The Vault Overall 75, along with feedback from thousands of directors and officers of US publicly traded companies listed on the NYSE Euronext and NASDAQ OMX stock exchanges.
Survey respondents were asked to weigh in on current governance and legal matters and asked who they would most likely turn to for national corporate legal matters.
"We congratulate all of these leading organizations—both returning firms and new ones—selected as top corporate law firms by directors and their general counsel peers," said Jean-Marc Levy, senior vice president and head of global issuer services at New York Stock Exchange. "These rankings recognize their place among corporate directors and general counsel as trusted legal advisers with proven track records."
The lists of the top 25 national law firms in America are published in the second quarter issue of Corporate Board Member magazine based on the number of votes received. One list is based upon votes by directors, and a second list is comprised of the top vote getters among public company general counsel. View the publication's press release and the full 2014 lists.
On May 13, 2014 NYSE Governance Services and FTI Consulting celebrated with honoree firms at the Legal Recognition Dinner at the Grand Hyatt in New York.
