‘Corporate America’ names firm among top legal service providers

Corporate Counsel

Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest law firms, was recently named by Corporate Counsel magazine as one of the top law firms servicing corporate America.

The firm’s top tier designation, which is based on feedback provided by executives from Fortune 100 companies, was published in a feature article, titled: “Who Represents America's Biggest Companies," in the October issue of Corporate Counsel.

Plunkett Cooney, which is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year, was one of only nine firms identified in the annual nationwide survey that received 13 unprompted mentions from Fortune 100 in-house corporate counsel when they were asked to identify the firms they use most for business litigation.

“This is a tremendous honor for our firm,” said Plunkett Cooney President and CEO, Henry B. Cooney. “We have the privilege of working with some of the largest and most successful companies in the world and to be mentioned by them as one of their primary law firms is truly a compliment to the efforts of our attorneys and staff.”

To determine which law firms represent America’s largest corporations, Corporate Counsel searched public records to identify outside counsel used by Fortune 100 companies for corporate law, contract litigation, labor litigation, torts litigation and intellectual property. The research was used to verify feedback gathered from in-house attorneys who participated in the annual survey.

Corporate Counsel is an integrated media source headquartered in New York that covers the legal affairs, business issues and government mandates impacting corporate America and the in-house legal community.

Established in 1913, Plunkett Cooney employs over 160 attorneys in nine Michigan cities and one each in Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana. The firm has achieved the highest rating (AV) awarded by Martindale-Hubbell, a leading, international directory of law firms and is listed among the U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in 2013. Plunkett Cooney has also received several awards naming the firm as a top place to work within the legal industry.
