Brown & James Named "Go-To Law Firm" for Seventh Year in a Row
"Go-To Law Firm" for the Top 500 Companies in Litigation
June 27, 2013
For seven consecutive years, Brown & James, P.C. has been named a “Go-To Law Firm" for the Top 500 Companies, an elite group of law firms that deliver exceptional service to companies in the Fortune 500. For 2013, Brown & James, P.C. was named a “Go-To Law Firm” for the Top 500 Companies in Litigation for clients; Auto-Owners Insurance Company and The Allstate Corporation.
The four key litigation areas used to determine outside counsel are: torts litigation, contracts litigation, labor litigation, and intellectual property and patent litigation.
“Go-To Law Firms” are identified by data collected from surveys sent to general counsel at Fortune 500 companies to determine which law firms they rely upon, as well as various public record resources such as court dockets and security filings, and leading legal and business publications, including The American Lawyer and Corporate Counsel (American Lawyer Media).
To be selected, law firms must be picked as a “primary law firm” which is defined as:
· The firms that are on the company’s preferred list
· The Go-To Law Firms for a specific practice area
· Firms that handled the most important cases in the previous year
· Firms used most often
· Firms with the most billings
The full list of "Go-To Law Firms" were released earlier this year in ALM's 10th Annual Edition of In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 Companies published by Corporate Counsel.
