Kilpatrick Stockton LLP announced today that it has been identified as a “leading” firm, the top honor a firm can receive in the recently released PLC Which Lawyer? Yearbook 2005. The firm earned this distinction in two key areas: intellectual property and labor and employee benefits.

Among other significant acknowledgements, Kilpatrick Stockton was recognized for its recent development of a New York office. The survey also noted the firm’s strategic expansion of capabilities in several key practice areas. Due to this expansion, the firm was “highly recommended” in the areas of corporate real estate, banking and finance, company and corporate transactions, dispute resolution, and restructuring and insolvency. Overall, Kilpatrick Stockton was named one of the top three firms in Atlanta.

Formerly known as Global Counsel 3000, the Yearbook provides law firms and individual lawyer recommendations by core commercial practice areas in over 70 jurisdictions worldwide. The recommendations are based on responses to surveys of in-house counsel in the companies listed in the PLC Law Department Profiles and on interviews with private practitioners.
