The first ARL ranking of US law firms who act as corporate legal advisers to UK quoted companies, the report ranks US law firms by their number of FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and FTSE 350 clients and by total number of UK stock market clients.
White & Case earned the following rankings from ARL:
- Number 1: Total market excluding AIM
- Number 1: FTSE 250
- Number 2: FTSE 350
Patrick Sarch, head of Corporate M&A in London, commented "this is an area which has traditionally been dominated by the UK Magic Circle law firms, but with our strong UK full service capability and US and global reach, we are able to provide UK listed corporates with high quality, efficient and valuable support. We are delighted to see the independent statistics demonstrating that more and more UK listed companies are recognising White & Case as a compelling alternative to the usual UK firms".
