Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom are the market leaders in corporate transactions, according to a new BTI Consulting Group survey of corporate counsel. Among the 106 law firms named by corporate counsel who participated in the study, they were most likely to recommend the New York-based Skadden for transactional work. “Skadden enjoys the absolute strongest market position and the envy of virtually every M&A player,” said Michael B. Rynowecer, president of Wellesley, Mass.-based BTI. “But, aggressive firms are waging a fierce battle to establish convincing market positions and are making substantial progress.” The BTI research identified nine other firms as power players in the transactions market, including: Baker & McKenzie; Jones Day; Mayer Brown of Chicago; McDermott, Will & Emery; Sidley Austin; Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz of New York; and Houston’s Vinson & Elkins. Corporate decision makers view New York’s Cravath, Swaine & Moore, Skadden and Wachtell as the three safest choices for complex or highly-scrutinized transactions. The BTI study is based on 150 telephone interviews with transactional corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 companies and companies with more than $1 billion in revenue.
