October 02, 2018

NEW YORK, October 2, 2018: Morgan Lewis has been named among the top 20 leading global law firm brands by Acritas Research Ltd.

This year’s Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index interviewed more than 800 general counsel and other legal decisionmakers about which firms were described as top of mind and viewed most favorably. Respondents also ranked firms on innovation and the likelihood of turning to them for representation in major multijurisdictional litigation and deals.

“The firm has continued its unprecedented growth, expanding our client offerings and deepening our bench of talent,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “We are grateful to our clients for their support and confirmation that we are on the right path to answering their needs.”  

Morgan Lewis’s ranking on the Acritas global index has jumped to #19 in 2018 from #34 in 2013. The movement parallels the global growth of the firm, which added more than 700 legal professionals from Bingham McCutchen in 2014, followed by expansion into Singapore, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
