Haynes and Boone Again Named a Top Corporate Law Firm for Public Companies

05/20/2009

For the sixth consecutive year, Haynes and Boone, LLP has been named a Top Corporate Law Firm in Dallas-Fort Worth by Corporate Board Member magazine.

Corporate Board Member has been surveying the directors and general counsel of all U.S. publicly-traded companies since 2001 to identify America's top corporate law firms in the nation’s 25 largest metropolitan areas. Haynes and Boone has earned top marks in DFW eight of the past nine years.

“This award is always an honor and each year represents a renewed significance for the firm,” said Greg Samuel, partner and head of Haynes and Boone’s corporate section. “Over the past year, we have continued to grow as a firm, adding leading lawyers, expanding into California, and expanding practice areas to meet client needs. It is great to be recognized for the challenging and interesting work we do every day.”

Added Managing Partner Terry Conner: “We have outstanding lawyers who are committed to and truly enjoy advising our dynamic clients in their most important transactional, litigation, and regulatory matters. Their depth of experience is particularly critical in today’s challenging environment.”

Mike Boone, founding partner and senior corporate partner, said the designation reflects the firm’s historical focus on service. “From the very beginning, Haynes and Boone’s aim has always been to be a leader among corporate law firms in representing public companies and their boards of directors, in Texas and around the world,” Mr. Boone said. “To be recognized by Corporate Board Member through the board members and general counsel who select the best corporate law firms in the U.S. is a very special achievement that our firm cherishes greatly.”

Haynes and Boone’s corporate practice includes more than 130 lawyers, spanning all twelve of the firm’s offices. The firm offers clients quality legal services with international reach – an essential requirement now that Texas has become home to more Fortune 1000 public companies than any other state in the U.S.

Haynes and Boone, LLP is an international corporate law firm with offices in Texas, New York, California, Washington, D.C., Mexico City and Moscow, providing a full spectrum of legal services. With almost 550 attorneys, Haynes and Boone is ranked among the largest law firms in the nation by The National Law Journal. The firm has been recognized as one of the "Best Corporate Law Firms in America" (Corporate Board Member Magazine, 2001-2009), as one of "The Best 20 Law Firms to Work For" (Vault.com, 2008), and as a Top 100 law firm for both diversity (MultiCultural Law Magazine, 2009) and women (Women 3.0, 2008).
