The Legal 500 United States is an independent guide. Firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit. More than 250,000 corporate counsel have been surveyed and interviewed globally in the past 12 months. Only a small number of firms in the United States have a truly national presence coupled with the capability to handle sophisticated and complex work; these are the firms that are chosen for the Legal 500 honors.
