Survey Ranks Haynes and Boone Tops for D-FW Corporate Law
– Haynes and Boone, LLP has been selected No. 1 for corporate law in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by Corporate Board Member
magazine and FTI Consulting Inc.
It is the seventh consecutive year that the firm has been named a Top Corporate Law Firm in the study, which this year identified the top three law firms in 25 major U.S. metropolitan areas according to the directors and general counsel polled.
The magazine began surveying directors and general counsel of U.S. publicly traded companies in 2001, and Haynes and Boone has earned top marks in DFW nine of the last ten years.
“The competition for this honor gets tougher every year, which makes it all the more gratifying to win again,” said Greg Samuel
, partner and head of Haynes and Boone’s corporate section.
“The fact that these rankings come not from other lawyers, but from the nation's leading corporate officers and in-house attorneys, makes them very special to our firm. It's really an award from our clients."
Added Managing Partner Terry Conner
: "I think corporate leaders have grown to appreciate the deep and talented bench our firm brings to their key transactional, litigation and regulatory matters. Because North Texas is now home to the largest number of Fortune 500 companies in the country, this recognition takes on an added significance for our firm and its future.”
Firm co-founder and senior corporate partner Mike Boone
said the honor reflects firm history. “Client service has been a hallmark of Haynes and Boone since its inception," he said. "To top this survey for so many consecutive years shows that general counsel and directors understand we have their interests at heart whenever we're handling their crucial legal needs.”
The survey was mailed in January 2011 and also asked directors and general counsel of U.S. publicly traded companies to weigh in on current governance matters. A broader analysis of these results will be featured in a special supplement sponsored by FTI Consulting, which mails along with the third-quarter issue 2011 issue of Corporate Board Member.
A complete listing of the national, general counsel, and metropolitan rankings appears in the Q2 2011 issue of the magazine and is available at www.boardmember.com.
Haynes and Boone’s corporate practice includes more than 130 lawyers, spanning all twelve of the firm’s offices. The firm offers clients quality legal services with international reach.
