Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Williams Mullen is pleased to announce that the firm has been named in Corporate Counsel magazine’s list of recommendations by In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 Companies for Go-To Law Firms®.
To create the list, surveys were sent asking General Counsel at 500 major companies which outside law firms they turned to for assistance. Williams Mullen was named as a “Go-To Law Firm®” in five practice areas: Intellectual Property, Corporate Transactions, Securities, Labor & Employment and Litigation. Firm clients, including Dollar Tree, the largest single-price-point retailer in the U.S., which is headquartered in Chesapeake, and Universal Health Services, one of the largest and most respected healthcare management companies in the U.S., nominated Williams Mullen for this recognition.
In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 Companies featuring Go-To Law Firms® incorporates data collected on each company’s primary law firms by surveys sent to General Counsel at each of the top 500 companies and through research in various resources including public records, leading publications and commercial databases such as The American Lawyer, The National Law Journal, Corporate Counsel magazine, and numerous other magazines and newspapers.
Williams Mullen president and CEO, Thomas R. Frantz, commented, "We are pleased to be included in Corporate Counsel magazine's list of recommendations by In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 Companies. Our Intellectual Property, Corporate Transactions, Securities, Labor & Employment and Litigation practice areas were listed as 'Go-To' practices by Corporate Counsel for 2011. This honor is even more significant to the firm because we were nominated by our clients."
