NEW YORK, February 12, 2019: In an increasingly competitive legal marketplace, Morgan Lewis has been named the 3rd strongest law firm brand by Acritas in its US Law Firm Brand Index 2019. The ranking, up from #8 in 2018, elevates Morgan Lewis into the top five US brands, with global firms Jones Day, Skadden, Kirkland & Ellis, and Latham & Watkins.
“We are very grateful to our clients for this tremendous recognition,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “It is a reflection of our core commitment to exceptional service by deepening our practice and industry offerings, growing strategically with our clients’ needs as the guiding star, and hiring and retaining top-notch talent.”
The annual rankings are based on interviews with more than 600 in-house counsel at US companies with more than $50 million in revenue plus nearly 300 international senior legal services buyers. The survey asked respondents about their awareness and favorability of firms, which firms they would choose for top-level litigation and major M&A work, and their most used firms overall.
