What do the biggest patent trial in history, the biggest U.S. M&A deal and the biggest bankruptcy of 2012 have in common? The answer is Morrison & Foerster — and the skills, dedication and confidence of lawyers who continually give new meaning to the term “high stakes.”
With more than 1,000 lawyers in key technology and financial centers in the United States, Asia and Europe, Morrison & Foerster advises financial institutions, investment banks, Fortune 100, technology and life science companies. MoFo’s lawyers share a singular commitment to providing clients with the exceptional service that has become our calling card. It’s why Autodesk, Genentech, Goldman Sachs, Intel, Novartis, Oracle, UPS and Yahoo! entrust our lawyers with their most critical matters. And it’s why MoFo is consistently ranked among the very best in the legal industry.
The American Lawyer
For 10 years running, The American Lawyer has named Morrison & Foerster to its prestigious A-List. Only 20 firms within the Am Law 200 are named to the annual list, and MoFo ranked #10 in 2013. Equally impressive, and showing remarkably consistent progress over the last decade, MoFo ranked seventh overall on a cumulative list based on rankings over the last 10 years.
The BTI Consulting Group recognized Morrison & Foerster as a 2013 Brand Elite Firm. Based on unprompted feedback from more than 500 in-house counsel at some of the world’s largest organizations, MoFo stood out as one of a small group of firms that, according to BTI, “have it all in the eyes of clients.”
Chambers and Partners
In March, Chambers Global named Morrison & Foerster its 2013 USA Law Firm of the Year. “The US-based giant,” the editors said in announcing the award, “has experienced one of the most successful years in its long and illustrious history.” Last year the firm was involved in the global smartphone disputes that culminated in one of the most closely watched patent trials of our time. We also had a leading role advising both ResCap in its landmark restructuring and the Chapter 11 trustee for MF Global. At the 2013 Chambers USA Awards for Excellence held in New York on May 23, Morrison & Foerster was named Intellectual Property Firm of the Year and Bankruptcy Firm of the Year for our work on these and other noteworthy matters.
