Acritas Research Ranks King & Spalding Among Top 20 U.S. Law Firm Brands

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2019 — Acritas Research has named King & Spalding among the top 20 law firm brands in the United States in its annual brand recognition survey of senior in-house counsel. The firm has made Acritas’s top 20 for three straight years.

The Acritas U.S. Law Firm Brand Index measures the brand strength of law firms across five metrics: top-of-mind awareness, favorability, consideration for top-level litigation, consideration for M&A, overall usage among U.S.-based clients and inbound usage among international clients.

The survey is based on data collected from an independent telephone survey of 624 senior in-house counsel from around the world across a range of industries. 258 of those surveyed were at non-U.S.-based organizations, and were asked which firms they used for their U.S.-based legal needs.
