How did we find out who represents America’s largest corporations? The short answer: We asked them. Specifically, we sent surveys to the general counsel of Fortune 250 companies, querying them about their primary outside counsel for litigation, corporate transactions, and intellectual property. We got back 190 responses, which represent about three-fourths of the 250 companies. For the most part, the answers were all over the lot: While a few companies named a single firm as their main counsel for all three categories, most listed several firms for each practice area. However, 15 of the 190 respondents either didn’t provide firm names or wrote “none” in answer to the queries about outside counsel; hence, those 15 companies were eliminated from our list. The final compilation consists of the 175 companies that did provide specific information about their outside counsel. The law firms on the charts that follow are listed in alphabetical order.
