1/3/12 Vorys Named Go-To Law Firm for Ninth Straight Year by Fortune 500 Clients
Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease has been recognized as a 2012 Go-To Law Firm® in Corporate Counsel magazine’s ninth annual survey of in-house counsel at the top 500 companies in the United States. Vorys was chosen based on feedback from some of the largest and most respected companies in the nation, including: Ashland, Best Buy, Big Lots, Inc., Eaton Corp, Fifth Third Bancorp, Goodrich, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Limited Brands, Lockheed Martin, and Western & Southern Financial Group.
Vorys has been recognized every year since the inception of the survey, in 2003, in multiple practice areas. According to Corporate Counsel, less than one percent of all law firms in the U.S. are recognized with this respected honor and all Go-To firms will be highlighted in a 2012 edition of Fortune magazine.
The survey asked general counsel at the top 500 U.S. companies which outside law firms they turn to first to handle their most challenging legal needs and which firms they preferred in a variety of practice areas. The survey along with research from key databases formed the basis for the Vorys’ selection as a Go-To Law Firm®. Ten companies named Vorys as their firm of choice in five practice areas: banking and finance; corporate transactions; labor and employment; litigation; and securities law.
Vorys was established in 1909 and has grown to be one of the largest Ohio-based law firms with 375 attorneys in six offices in Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Akron, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; and Houston, Texas. Vorys currently ranks as one of the 200 largest law firms in the United States according to American Lawyer magazine.
