McDermott Brand Listed Among Top US Law Firms


CHICAGO (February 14, 2017) — International law firm McDermott Will & Emery received its highest ranking to date, coming in 17th in this year’s Top 20 US Law Firms Brand Index published by Acritas, a leading provider of legal market research.

“This is a great affirmation that we continue to stand out among our peers for building trusted relationships and providing our clients with the best possible experience,” said Ira J. Coleman, chairman of McDermott Will & Emery.

The Acritas US Law Firm Brand Index is an independent audit of US law firms and draws upon the input from 765 general counsel or equivalent, around the world and across a diverse set of industries. Of those surveyed, 604 were from US-based organizations, with the remainder coming from multinational firms that have a legal need in the US. The index measures brand strength through six metrics, which include: top of mind awareness, favorability, consideration for top-level deals and litigation, overall usage among US-based clients and inbound usage among international clients.

According to Acritas, “[t]he Index is a reflection of which firms are doing a better job of making and maintaining a meaningful relevant impression with clients through experience, relationship development and aligning strategy with clients’ goals and needs.”
