Jones Day, K&E and L&W, top US law firms in 2020 Acritas index

Acritas, part of Thomson Reuters, has announced the 2020 U.S. Law Firm Brand Index. Jones Day takes the number one spot as the strongest law firm brand in the U.S. for the fourth consecutive year

Kirkland & Ellis takes the number two spot in the index, securing its highest ranking yet and improving in nearly every attribute used to assess U.S. brand strength. Latham & Watkins claims the third position, increasing its score from last year. Both firms have grown their brand scores at an impressive rate, closing the gap on Jones Day’s long-term leading position.

The Acritas US Law Firm Brand Index 2020 is based on data compiled from Sharplegal 2019, a comprehensive study of the global legal market across 55 countries with over 2,000 in-house counsel who have senior responsibility for buying legal services in organizations with revenues of $50m and above.

Jones Day opened its Madrid office in 2000, with a multidisciplinary team of more than 40 lawyers.
