New York - Global law firm K&L Gates LLP has been named one of the top 25 corporate law firms in the United States, according to a survey of U.S. general counsel by Corporate Board Member magazine, NYSE Governance Services, and FTI Consulting.

Published in the magazine’s annual “America’s Best Corporate Law Firms” issue, the rankings are based on a survey of general counsel from U.S. public companies regarding the national firms they would retain for a variety of corporate governance and legal matters.
