Top law firms vow to make the world green


In an endeavor to play their part well in tackling global warming issues, numerous large law firms went on a 'go green' spree by celebrating the World Environment day with lots of fervor and passion. The law firms including Linklaters, Eversheds, Simmons & Simmons, and Hammonds joined hands in a bid to express their unflinching solidarity toward Mother Nature. Linklaters has designed a website, wherein the attorneys will pledge everyday of the coming six months to do whatever little they can to save the environment. Eversheds has rolled out a 'big switch off" campaign. The rationale behind Eversheds' campaign is to drum up enough enthusiasm in the attorneys to put off computers and lights once they have done with their work. Hammonds has come up with an environmental policy draft to be posted on the intranet, so as to garner support to cut down energy consumption.

Bryan Cave receives accolades as best corporate law firm
Bryan Cave was yet again declared as the best corporate law firm by corporate board member magazine's seventh annual Legal Industry Research Study. The law firm was followed by Armstrong Teasdale LLP , which stood second. "It is a huge honor to be recognized as the top law firm in St. Louis for the third year in a row," said Jay Nouss, co-leader of Bryan Cave's Corporate Finance & Securities Client Service Group. About 20 top national corporate law firms and five premier corporate law firms from 25 metropolitan areas were put under scanner for the study funded by FTI consulting. About 20,715 directors and 1,043 general counsels of publicly traded companies listed with the NASDAQ, New York or American Stock Exchanges were made part of this survey to determine the country's top law firms. Other law firms that made it to the top five include, Thompson Coburn LLP, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP, Greensfelder Hemkar & Gale PC, and Lewis Rice & Fingersh LC.
