MILWAUKEE, Wis. (May 17, 2011) — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that the Firm was named the top corporate law firm in Milwaukee by Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting Inc. This is the magazine’s 11th annual “America’s Best Corporate Law Firms” study.

Corporate Board Member’s study, sponsored by FTI Consulting, is a comprehensive ranking by U.S. corporate directors and general counsel of the top 25 national corporate law firms. In addition to naming the top 25 corporate law firms nationally, the Corporate Board Member/FTI Consulting study identifies the top law firm in 25 major U.S. metropolitan areas, according to the directors and general counsel polled. The survey was mailed in January 2011 and also asked directors and general counsel of U.S. publicly traded companies to weigh in on current governance matters. A complete listing of the national, general counsel, and metropolitan rankings are listed in the 2011 Corporate Board Member, “America’s Best Law Firms,” issue and online at http://www.boardmember.com/currentissue.aspx.

“Each of the law firms on this year’s list rightly deserves recognition for both the reputations they have established and for the outstanding service they deliver,” said TK Kerstetter, president of Corporate Board Member. “Law firms especially value our rankings because they come not from their peers—other lawyers—but from the corporate officers, directors, and in-house attorneys who hire law firms.”
