METHODOLOGY: To determine which law firms represent America’s largest corporations, the editorial group searches Lexis CounselLink and other public records to find outside counsel used for five key litigation areas (with corresponding “nature of suit,” or NOS, codes): • Contracts Litigation (110-196) • Labor Litigation (710-791) • Torts Litigation (240, 245, 310-385) • Intellectual Property Litigation (820, 840) • Labor/Employment Law (442, 445) We searched LexisNexis CounselLink, which provides access to cases by those NOS codes. For contracts litigation, we included categories such as insurance and contract product liability, while for torts litigation, we included personal injury and personal property. Included in our labor litigation search categories were the Fair Labor Standards Act and other labor-related suits; intellectual property litigation encompassed copyrights, patents and trademarks. Research is conducted in July and August, and looks at a calendar year time period (January to December) for the previous calendar year. The main chart contains firms with one or more mentions. Although we generally focus on large, Am Law 200-type law firms, we do include smaller firms that may have an unusual amount of activity in any one or multiple NOS areas. — Craig Savitsky
