NEW YORK–LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – ALM’s Corporate Counsel® magazine, the nation’s leading magazine for general counsel and in-house attorneys at corporations across the country, today announced that it will publish a new reference guide to in-house law departments at the nation’s leading financial services companies. The guide will premiere this summer and will include detailed profiles and contact information for general counsel at these corporations, as well as listings of their current outside “Go-To Law Firms®” in various practice areas, including litigation, securities, transactions, compliance and intellectual property.
The Guide was developed in response to a research study of Corporate Counsel readers that revealed that in-house legal department information on the financial services industry was a top priority of respondents.
“Go-To Law Firms” were identified through research conducted by ALM. Researchers asked general counsel at the leading financial services companies which outside law firms they turn to for assistance. ALM’s research department also investigated and gathered data on financial services company’s “Go-To Law Firms” from various public records resources including court dockets and securities filings, as well as legal and business publications, including The American Lawyer®.
The guide will be distributed to more than 10,000 general counsel, including those at all FORTUNE 1000 financial services companies, and will be available on the Web at www.law.com. Content will include contact information, bios and photos of the general counsel at leading financial services companies, as well as “Go-To Law Firm” listings, profiles and practice area updates.
For additional information on the guide and related advertising opportunities, please contact Brad Silberberg at 1-(800) 888-8300 or e-mail [email protected]
