MoFo also ranked #1 in the United States for Technology and Clean Tech
SAN FRANCISCO (July 22, 2013) – For the second year in a row, Morrison & Foerster has been ranked as the top law firm in Northern California by leading legal career intelligence web site Vault.com. Vault also named Morrison & Foerster the top firm in the United States for technology and clean technology/renewable energy. In addition, for the third year in a row, the firm was ranked among the top 25 law firms in Vault’s annual list of top 100 law firms in the United States. Vault bases its rankings on the input of 17,000 lawyers from around the United States. Morrison & Foerster has consistently appeared among the top firms nationally since the inception of Vault’s rankings in 1997.
As Vault notes, “MoFo complements its expertise in IP, finance, life sciences, technology, and litigation with a long reach across the Pacific Rim. And staying true to its roots…the firm’s pro bono commitment is deeply held.”
“It is very rewarding to once again be ranked as the top firm in Northern California. It is a highly competitive market, and this honor is a reflection of Morrison & Foerster’s strength and reach in the Bay Area, as well as the breadth and depth of our market-leading practices, including litigation, technology and clean tech,” said Anna Erickson White, Morrison & Foerster’s firmwide managing partner.
The new Vault rankings follow Morrison & Foerster’s selection earlier this month to The American Lawyer’s annual A-List, the publication’s most prestigious ranking, which honors only 20 firms based on four factors, including revenue per lawyer, pro bono, diversity and associate satisfaction. This is the 10th straight year that MoFo has been named to the A-List. In addition, Chambers Global named Morrison & Foerster its 2013 USA Law Firm of the Year. "The US-based global giant," the editors said in announcing the honor, "has experienced one of the most successful years in its long and illustrious history."
