How did we find out who represents America’s largest corporations? We asked, sending surveys to the general counsel of the Fortune 250. We asked them to name their primary law firms for litigation, corporate transactions, labor and employment, intellectual property, and corporate governance. In the charts, primary outside counsel refers to the law firms that are on the company’s preferred list; the “go-to” firms for a specific practice area; firms that handled the most important cases in the previous year; firms used most often; and/or firms with the most billings from that company. The choice of which firms to name was up to the company, but corporations had to limit their selections to seven firms per practice area. Law firm names have been shortened for space reasons. We heard from 244 companies, although 125 of those businesses refused to provide any information regarding their outside counsel. When companies declined to participate, we noted that on the chart with “Will not disclose.” There were also six cases where we did not receive a response from the company. In those instances we noted “Company did not respond by press time.” -Rosemarie Clancy
