CHICAGO (January 5, 2010) — McDermott Will & Emery LLP is pleased to announce that it has been named a “Go-To Law Firm” in the seventh annual edition of Corporate Counsel’s legal reference guide, “In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 Companies.” In particular, the Firm is recognized in the 2010 issue for its work on behalf of a number of the country’s best-known businesses. McDermott is also being honored for its overall track record and legal acumen in several specific disciplines, including Corporate Transactions/Mergers & Acquisitions, International, Labor and Employment, Litigation, and Intellectual Property.
In addition to providing up-to-date information on in-house law departments and general counsel at the nation’s top companies, the guide profiles the law firms they turn to for a broad range of legal services and advice. Firms named as Go-To providers are identified initially in surveys conducted by American Lawyer Media, publisher of Corporate Counsel and other top industry journals. Nominee firms are then put through a careful screening process involving in-depth research and analysis of public filings and other resources. Only the strongest firms make it to the top of the list and are honored as a “Go-To Law Firm.”
