US News World Report Law Firm Rankings Are Out - Who Wins in Antitrust?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The new US News and World Report Law Firm Rankings are out.  Personally, I am not impressed.  There is not a good sense of why a firm gets ranked the way it does.  Moreover, there is a lack of details about particular partners and recent deals or cases.  I am also surprised a bit (and in some cases surprised a lot) by what firms made the cut as "best" and what firms did not.  In other words, when in doubt, stick with the far superior Chambers rankings.

Nevertheless, below are all of the firms ranked in Tier 1 for National antitrust practice:

Gibson Dunn, K&L Gates, Mayer Brown, McDermott Will & Emery, Sidley Austin, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Arnold & Porter, Boies, Schiller & Flexner, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, Covington & Burling, Davis Polk & Wardwell, Dewey & LeBoeuf, Howrey, Jones Day, Kenny Nachwalter, Kirkland & Ellis, O'Melveny & Myers, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, Sullivan & Cromwell , Weil, Gotshal & Manges, WilmerHale
