Global law firm K&L Gates LLP, which operates an office in Charleston, South Carolina, was recently honored by legal market research company Acritas as one of the 10 strongest law firm brands in the United States.
“In our business, brand rankings are a function of client service and strategic positioning,” Peter J. Kalis, K&L Gates’ chairman and global managing partner said. “We deeply appreciate this vote of confidence of the client community.”
K&L Gates employs about 2,000 attorneys in its offices, which are located on five continents. Those attorneys serve as counsel for multinational corporations, growth and middle-market companies, capital markets participants, public sector clients, educational institutions, philanthropic groups and individuals.
This is the second year in a row K&L Gates made the Acritas Top 10; the company has made the index list since it was launched in 2012.
The rankings are compiled using survey responses from about 800 senior counsel and representatives from companies around the world.
