Skadden NamedCorporate Board Member’s Best U.S. Corporate Law Firm for Eleventh Consecutive Year

For 11 consecutive years, Skadden has been named the top corporate law firm in the United States in Corporate Board Member magazine’s annual survey of “America's Best Corporate Law Firms” (May 10), which asked directors of publicly traded companies to identify the firms considered the best. Skadden also ranked first in a separate survey conducted by the magazine that asked general counsel which law firms they would most want to represent their companies on national matters.

“Special congratulations go to Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which ranked first in surveys of both company directors and general counsel,” said TK Kerstetter, president of Corporate Board Member, in the magazine’s announcement. “Taken together, the director and the general counsel rankings provide savvy intelligence for boards looking for legal firepower when the going gets rough — especially in challenging economic times.”
