(Media, PA) — Gibley and McWilliams, P.C. was chosen as a “Go-To Law Firm” in Litigation by one of its Fortune 500 clients, in a survey of Top 500 U.S. Companies by Corporate Counsel magazine for its annual issue highlighting “Who Represents America’s Biggest Companies?” Nominated by Sears Holdings Corporation, the law firm will also be featured in FORTUNE magazine’s “The Go-To Law Firms of the World’s Leading Companies” to be published in May 2008.
“We are very proud to receive this level of recognition,” commented Joseph W. Gibley, a founding partner of Gibley and McWilliams PC. “It is an affirmation of our firm’s trial experience and our service-oriented approach to meeting the needs of every client.”
General Counsels of Fortune 500 companies were asked to identify their “go-to” firms in seven practice areas, including Litigation, Corporate Transactions/Mergers & Acquisitions, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Canada, International and Securities. Less than one percent of all firms in the U.S. and abroad are recognized with this esteemed honor.
