Faegre & Benson is proud to announce that it has been named the top corporate law firm in the Minneapolis area by the 11th annual America's Best Corporate Law Firms study. The study, conducted by Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting Inc., relies on rankings by corporate directors and general counsel, and is part of a nationwide polling process.
To identify the top corporate law firm in Minneapolis, Corporate Board Member compiled a list of firms that are among the largest in the area by number of attorneys and that practice business, corporate, or commercial law. A questionnaire was then sent to corporate directors and general counsel in the city, asking respondents to select their five top choices from the list, or, as a write-in option, to explain which ones they would most likely select to aid their companies on a broad range of corporate legal issues.
"Each of the law firms on this year's list rightly deserves recognition for both the reputations they have established and for the outstanding service they deliver," said TK Kerstetter, president of Corporate Board Member. "Law firms especially value our rankings because they come not from their peers—other lawyers—but from the corporate officers, directors, and in-house attorneys who hire law firms."
A broader analysis of the study results will be featured in a special supplement sponsored by FTI Consulting, which mails along with the third-quarter 2011 issue of Corporate Board Member.
