NEW YORK, February 12, 2018: Morgan Lewis has again been named one of the top 10 US law firm brands by Acritas Research Ltd. The legal marketing research provider’s US Law Firm Brand Index 2018 rankings are based on interviews with 600 in-house counsel, placing the firm #8 on this year’s list.
Morgan Lewis’s consistent top 10 ranking in the index parallels the firm’s US and global growth, particularly in Asia. One year ago, the firm opened an office* in Hong Kong, significantly adding to its China corporate, capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and private equity practices with the addition of 13 partners, including some who joined in Beijing and Shanghai. In the United States the firm also recently has added leading partners to its tax team, significantly expanded its national healthcare team, and enhanced its international trade and economic sanctions team, among other key additions. The firm now counts more than 2,200 lawyers and legal professionals across Asia, North America, Europe, and the Middle East.
Survey respondents evaluated law firms based on awareness and favorability, as well as the likelihood of turning to them for representation in major multijurisdictional litigation and deals. Morgan Lewis provides comprehensive litigation, corporate, transactional, regulatory, intellectual property, and labor and employment legal services to clients around the world.
