Adams and Reese has been selected by corporate directors and the editors of Corporate Board Member as one of the best law firms in New Orleans. The firm is highlighted in the 2003 July/August issue, "America's Best Corporate Lawyers."
The list identifies the top 20 firms nationally and the top five local firms in 50 major U.S. cities, as selected by directors of publicly traded companies listed with NASDAQ Stock Market, New York Stock Exchange, or American Stock Exchange.
"New laws and regulations are escalating pressures on corporate directors to do their jobs better, so the ties between good corporate governance and excellent legal advice are stronger than ever," says William S. Rukeyser, editorial director of Corporate Board Member. "Unlike other published lists, our survey goes directly to the source to find out who boards are most confident about turning to for help."
Corporate Board Member magazine is a national, bi-monthly publication and a leading resource for senior officers and directors of publicly traded corporations, large private companies, and Global 1000 firms.
Adams and Reese is a multidisciplinary law firm based in the South Central United States. With more than 200 lawyers, the firm has offices in New Orleans, LA; Baton Rouge, LA; Houston, TX; Jackson, MS; Mobile, AL; and Washington, DC.
