WASHINGTON, D.C. – LAWFUEL – The Law Firm Newswire – October 1, 2007 – Holland & Knight LLP is the nation’s top law firm for dealing with director liability issues according to a new survey released by Directors & Boards magazine. The results of the first annual Top Corporate Governance Law Firms survey were based on the responses of 420 directors and board members to a reader questionnaire.
“Holland & Knight is proud that corporate directors and other senior management throughout the country identified our firm as the very best in protecting their personal assets,” said Steven Sonberg, chair of the firm’s national Business Law Section. “The No. 1 ranking acknowledges the firm’s breadth and depth of experience in evaluating, negotiating and enforcing directors and officers liability insurance policies, along with our reputation for providing superior client service.”
Boards & Directors publishing director David Shaw said, “We did not provide a list of firms from which to choose, but rather asked survey respondents to fill in up to three law firms in each category. This ‘unaided’ response is more powerful, in our opinion. Additionally, we masked out responses from non-directors or company executives to ensure that only board members and senior management opinions were included out of the total 420 respondents to the survey.”
Full details of the survey results, including complete demographic profiles of the respondents (average company revenues, board size, respondents’ age, etc.) and director preferences related to general and outside counsel, personal liability and desired law firm attributes, are available in Directors & Boards Boardroom Briefing: The Legal Issue.
