K&L Gates Again Ranked Among Top 10 U.S. Law Firm Brands
“In our business, brand rankings are a function of client service and strategic positioning,” said Peter J. Kalis, K&L Gates’ Chairman and Global Managing Partner. “We deeply appreciate this vote of confidence of the client community.”
This year’s rankings were based on the unprompted responses of nearly 800 senior counsel and decision makers at U.S. companies and abroad on topics that included top-of-mind awareness; favorability; consideration of firms for top-level litigation and major M&A matters; and overall level of use.
The honor continues a string of noteworthy rankings for the firm in terms of both brand equity and client service, with K&L Gates in December also having been recognized for a second straight year among the top 10 law firms for client service excellence in the 2016 BTI Client Service 30 survey. K&L Gates is one of only six firms to rank in that survey’s top 10 in each of the past two years.
K&L Gates comprises approximately 2,000 lawyers globally who practice in fully integrated offices located on five continents. The firm represents leading multinational corporations, growth and middle-market companies, capital markets participants and entrepreneurs in every major industry group as well as public sector entities, educational institutions, philanthropic organizations and individuals.
