For the second year in a row, legal news and analysis provider Law360 has ranked White & Case the number one global law firm in its annual Global 20 list of the 20 firms with the greatest global reach and expertise. White & Case has been ranked among the top five firms in the list for all eight years in which Law360 has selected its Global 20, and previously held the top spot in both 2017 and 2014.
According to Law360, the Global 20 are selected based on how much they have expanded outside their home countries and the breadth, volume and sophistication of their cross-border work.
"Historically one of the strongest and most successful global firms year over year, and currently an eight-time Global 20 member, White & Case once again proved to be a formidable force on the world’s legal stage," Law360 reported in its announcement of White & Case’s inclusion in the Global 20.
Law360 also praised the particular success of White & Case’s Mergers & Acquisitions practice, its success representing clients in multijurisdictional disputes, and the Firm’s exceptional ability to handle cross-border matters.
"The fact that White & Case has such a significant presence in so many jurisdictions allows it to take part in complex cross-border deals into and out of the U.S., Europe, China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region, in addition to domestic transactions in those regions," Law360 reported.
