2013 "Go-To Law Firm"

Fredrikson & Byron was named a 2013 “Go-To Law Firm,” and will be featured in the 10th Annual “In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 U.S. Companies,” a guide produced by American Lawyer Media (ALM), the publishers of Corporate Counsel magazine. Fredrikson was selected for its work in the area of patent prosecution.

“Go-To” firms were identified through research conducted by ALM. Researchers asked general counsel at the top 500 companies which outside law firms they turn to most often for assistance in the practice areas of corporate transactions/mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, labor and employment, litigation, securities, Canadian and international law. Researchers also considered data gathered from various public record resources including court dockets and securities filings, as well as leading legal and business publications.
