Acritas has named 148 Norton Rose Fulbright lawyers to its 2019 Acritas Stars list, which serves as “a source of highly recommended lawyers, put together purely by the clients who pay for those lawyers, with no influence from law firms.”
Following four years of research, Acritas has reviewed more than 10,000 independent nominations of lawyers from law firm clients around the world. More than 8,000 individual lawyers have been identified altogether from 4,300 clients.
Of these lawyers, the Acritas Stars received nominations from more than one client and are hailed as “stand-out lawyers, who create a significant uplift in client satisfaction, advocacy and share of wallet.”
The nominations are collected during a broader research study of senior in-house counsel, Acritas’ global Sharplegal study. The research has revealed the huge impact Acritas Stars make on a variety of performance metrics, including “quality of expertise, closeness to client, being innovative and cost-effective[ness].”
In Acritas’ most recent Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index, Norton Rose Fulbright ranked fourth overall. The global law firm finished fourth for four straight years and placed in the top five for five consecutive years.
Acritas is a global legal services market business research firm, which also conducts Norton Rose Fulbright’s market-leading Litigation Trends Annual Survey.
