Legal news website Above the Law ranks Haynes and Boone, LLP among the top 10 U.S. energy law firms based on a survey of in-house counsel in the energy industry in 2018.
The industry-specific rankings are part of Above the Law’s new Outside Counsel Rankings, based on a national survey of corporate counsel. More than 1,000 in-house lawyers across over 500 companies based in more than 50 cities responded to the survey. Above the Law said that by reflecting the opinions of in-house counsel at top companies, the rankings are designed to provide “a true measure of law firm ‘prestige,’ the kind that leads directly to business.”
Haynes and Boone was one of the 10 firms that in-house counsel rated as Top Outside Counsel for Energy.
