America’s Top Corporate Law Firms For 2014

NYSE Governance Services, publisher of Corporate Board Member magazine, and FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced the results of the 14th annual America’s Best Corporate Law Firms study, a comprehensive ranking by U.S. corporate directors and general counsel of the top 25 corporate law firms.

New York’s Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom received the top ranking among corporate directors, a position it has held since the first survey in 2001. New York-based Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Cleveland-based Jones Day were ranked second and third, respectively, followed by New York-based Sullivan & Cromwell. The fifth and sixth place rankings are held by Los Angeles-based Latham & Watkins and New York-based Cravath, Swaine & Moore, respectively.

Also comprising this year’s list are many of the firms among the top 10 rankings in recent years. New York-based Davis Polk & Wardwell, Los Angeles-based Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher and Palo Alto-based Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati have traditionally fared in the top half of the national list each year. Six new firms were added to this year’s list: Atlanta-based King & Spalding (15), New York-based White & Case (19), New York-based Cleary Gottlieb (24), Chicago-based Winston & Strawn (25-tie), Atlanta-based Alston & Bird (25-tie) and Palo Alto-based Cooley (25-tie).

“As an advisor to 95 of the world’s top 100 law firms, FTI Consulting applauds this prestigious list of honorees,” said Neal Hochberg, Global Leader of the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment at FTI Consulting. “Each of these distinguished firms, many of which continue to top this list year after year, has been recognized for their strong corporate stewardship, geographic scope and reputation. We are proud to continue our longstanding partnership with NYSE Governance Services to honor these firms for their unyielding commitment to their clients.”
