Pittsburgh, PA— LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP’s (K&LNG) mutual fund practice was ranked first among firms that counsel mutual fund clients by The American Lawyer’s “Corporate Scorecard.”

Published annually, the Corporate Scorecard tracks transactional practices of leading law firms and ranks them based on a variety of criteria, including the net assets under management of a law firm’s fund clients. K&LNG, whose fund clients have in excess of $1.2 Trillion under management, has been consistently listed among various Corporate Scorecard categories since The American Lawyer first established these rankings in 1987.

“Our lawyers and our clients have long considered our investment management group to be a leader among law firms serving the investment management industry. We are pleased to see these views affirmed by our ranking,” said Robert J. Zutz, a leader in K&LNG’s investment management practice.

Peter Kalis, Chair of the firm’s Management Committee, added: “We have served the mutual fund industry for decades and are proud of the extraordinary confidence that industry members repose in our investment management lawyers in Washington, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles and London.”

Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham (K&LNG) has approximately 950 lawyers and represents entrepreneurs, growth and middle market companies and leading FORTUNE 100 and FTSE 100 global corporations nationally and internationally.

British MP George Galloway and his opponent the Daily Telegraph will leave no stone unturned to sort out what could be a spectacular libel case.
