The report, Law Firms with the Best Collaboration, is based on surveys with more than 300 general counsel, chief legal officers, and other top legal executives.
“Collaboration is one of our firm’s defining values because we know it is vital to delivering both exceptional service and the best results,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “To be acknowledged in this way by our clients – with whom we have the privilege of collaborating every day – is a tremendous honor. They and we recognize that teams who work together get better outcomes and have a more satisfying experience along the way.”
With the firm’s global platform and explosive growth over the past three years – including the addition of a significant number of practices from the firm Bingham McCutchen in 2014, a novel combination with The Stamford Law Firm in Singapore in 2015, and the addition of lawyers in China in 2016 and 2017 – the firm has prioritized not just integration but true collaboration across practices, offices, and industry groups.
“Our size and reach is an asset to clients because of our rigorous emphasis on understanding our clients’ needs and bringing the best teams together to address them,” added McKeon. “Drawing on our diverse partnership to serve clients from one integrated platform is only possible through collaboration.”
