Corporate Board Member magazine, published by NYSE Governance Services, and global business advisory firm FTI Consulting have once again named Baker & McKenzie one of the top 25 corporate law firms in the US, based on a comprehensive survey of nearly 700 corporate directors and general counsel.
In the magazine’s 16th annual “America’s Best Corporate Law Firms” study, corporate directors ranked the Firm No. 11 among "trusted outside legal counsel.” General counsel also ranked Baker & McKenzie No. 20 among the top firms in the survey.
Baker & McKenzie has been named by directors and corporate counsel as one of the top law firms in the US every year since the inception of the Corporate Board Member survey in 2001.
“The advisory role and expertise provided by a company’s trusted outside counsel is invaluable,” says Adam Sodowick, President of NYSE Governance Services. “Each year, public company directors and general counsel participate in our rankings because they feel strongly about which firms have the highest caliber of legal advice and consulting.”
The America’s Best Corporate Law Firms survey was conducted in early 2016 with results being published in the magazine’s Second Quarter 2016 issue.
