In a recent survey of the Top 500 U.S. Companies by Corporate Counsel magazine, our firm was chosen as a "Go-To" Law Firm by Federal Express, one of our clients. Corporate Counsel magazine asked General Counsel at each of the Top 500 U.S. Companies for its annual "Who Represents America's Biggest Companies Survey?" which outside law firms they turn to for assistance in various practice areas. The chosen firms make up the "Go-To" Law Firms, an honor bestowed upon less that one-half of one percent of all of the law firms in the U.S. and abroad. Federal Express listed our firm as a "Go-To" Law Firm in the area of Labor & Employment practice.
