For the third consecutive year, Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest law firms, has been listed among the 350 largest law firms in the United States by the National Law Journal (NLJ).
“Having just celebrated the firm’s centennial anniversary, this designation reminds us that stability is a key to Plunkett Cooney’s success,” said Plunkett Cooney President and CEO, Henry B. Cooney. “The firm’s management team continues to invest in attracting and retaining talented personnel as well as making sure that the firm has the expertise to meet our clients’ growing needs and concerns.”
In determining its list of the top law firms, the NLJ, one of the leading legal industry newspapers, surveyed hundreds of firms to identify the 350 largest. The lawyer totals were based on the average number of full-time equivalent attorneys for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2013.
For more than 30 years, the NLJ has published its list of largest firms. Plunkett Cooney, which was ranked 254 in 2012, moved 11 spots to 243 in the 2013 survey.
