Morgan Lewis is consistently listed as a leader in the mutual fund category, having received the top ranking for new funds in two of the last four years (2001 and 2004).

The firm's ranking as first in the mutual funds category follows the firm's cumulative and consistently high placement in the top 10 across several business categories over the years, including: Issuer's Counsel for U.S. Initial Public Offerings (IPOs); IPO Counsel to Venture-Backed Companies; Asset-Backed Securities; Mutual Funds and Bankruptcy.
