The 4 Firms In-House Counsel Fear The Most

Law360 (Link to Full Article, Sub. Req.) A quartet of BigLaw powerhouses that clean up in the courtroom have been identified by in-house counsel as the firms they least like to see on the other side of the table in litigation proceedings, according to a recent survey.

The group of litigation powerhouses — Jones Day, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP and Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP — are honored as the Fearsome Foursome in the BTI Litigation Outlook 2015, compiled by BTI Consulting Group Inc. BTI surveyed more than 300 general counsel and chief legal officers at major corporations, and more than half of them named one of the Fearsome Foursome as their most feared legal opponent.
