Skadden leads ranking of top US law firms

May 17, 2011 If you needed another ranking of the top US law firms, here it is. Corporate Board Member magazine and global business advisory firm FTI Consulting Inc asked US corporate directors and general counsel to rank the top 25 national corporate law firms, and came up with a list of usual suspects.

At the top of the list was New York based Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which has been placed first in the ranking every year since the survey began in 2001.

The top six firms were all placed in the top six last year also:
1. Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (New York)
2. Cravath, Swaine & Moore (New York)
3. Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz (New York)
4. Sullivan & Cromwell (New York)
5. Jones Day (Washington DC)
6. Weil, Gotshal & Manges (New York)

Neal Hochberg, senior managing director and segment leader – Forensic and Litigation Consulting, at FTI Consulting, said: “FTI Consulting once again is proud to conduct this important study with Corporate Board Member magazine, which allows us to applaud the impressive efforts of some of the most accomplished law firms across the country.” He added: “The results reveal that corporate directors and general counsel alike value the consistency among these firms, as many of the firms have maintained similar positions in the past few years. We congratulate all the firms that made the list, including Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom that again topped the list.”
