Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver and Jacobson LLP has been named one of the top 25 corporate law firms in the United States, according to the Corporate Board Member/FTI tenth annual survey released today by Corporate Board Member magazine.

Each year Corporate Board Member, a leading information resource for senior officers and directors of publicly traded corporations, large private companies, and Global 1000 firms, releases its annual list of the best corporate law firms in America. This year the list is based on a survey of over 1,900 general counsel and 8,900 directors serving on the boards of publicly traded companies listed on the NYSE Euronext, NASDAQ OMX, and NYSE Amex stock exchanges. The list identifies the top 25 firms nationally and the top local firm in each of 25 major US cities.
As a leader in corporate governance and counseling, Fried Frank provides a wide range of advice to private and publicly traded entities, independent directors, board committees and management in connection with governance and compliance matters and transactional, enforcement and crisis situations.
