Lane Powell Selected As One Of The Best Corporate Law Firms In Seattle
Lane Powell has been named one of the best corporate law firms in America in the Seattle market by Corporate Board Member magazine, a national magazine for directors of publicly traded companies.
Corporate Board Member, which published a similar survey last year, based its findings on a poll of its readers – some 52,000 directors and general counsel of publicly held companies traded on the New York and American stock exchanges and the NASDAQ market.
“Our readers need the best legal counsel they can get, locally and nationally,” says Colin Leinster, the magazine’s editor. ” Corporate directors have always had to walk a legal tightrope. Enron and other on-going scandals, the challenges of globalization, and ever-changing responsibilities to shareholders mean that law takes on an ever greater significance.”
“To be selected by directors and board members of some of the most prestigious companies in America is quite an honor,” said Jim Robart, Lane Powell’s co-managing partner. “To be named as one of the most respected commercial law firms in the Seattle market is a mark of distinction of which Lane Powell is extremely proud. We strive to provide the high level of legal advice and client service that has given our firm this recognition.”
