Firm Honored as a “Go-To Law Firm for Technology Companies”
Orr and Reno has been named a 2008 Go-To Law Firm for Technology Companies by Corporate Counsel magazine. Each year the magazine conducts surveys with in-house counsel at the top 500 American companies, asking them which outside law firms they use and for what practice areas.
The firm received the award for outstanding work done by attorneys Jim Bassett and Martha Van Oot. IMS Health, Inc. chose Bassett for his work in the practice area of Litigation and Oracle Corporation selected Van Oot for her work in the Intellectual Property arena.
Data to back up the surveys are gathered through court dockets, securities filings, and law publications. This year, ALM—a leading integrated media company and publisher of Corporate Counsel—has targeted the surveys toward top technology companies. The named firms have the honor of being Go-To Law Firms. The firm will appear in a new ALM-published guide called In-House Law Departments at the Leading Technology Companies, coming out soon. The guide will serve as a reference tool for in-house counsel at technology companies, allowing them to consider Go-To Law Firms as additional legal expertise. It will be distributed to more than 10,000 in-house counsel, including every Fortune 1000 General Counsel.
