Released today, the Acritas Asia Pacific Law Firm Brand Index 2018 is compiled from the unprompted responses of 441 senior general counsel in Asia Pacific organisations with annual revenues over $50m USD.
The 2018 result is the third consecutive year the firm has been ranked in the Top 10 - ranking eighth in 2017, and ninth in 2016. Notably, the firm rocketed from a ranking of 20 in 2015, to the Top 10 in 2016.
"Our performance as a trusted advisor can be attributed to the fantastic collaboration amongst our partnership group, our diverse talent base, and a demand for law firms with strong international capabilities," said Bruce Cowley, MinterEllison Chairman.
"As can be seen in the results from the Acritas Asia Pacific Law Firm Brand Index, the firm is continuing to thrive in an environment characterised by rapid change and disruption, and our momentum and commitment to be our clients' best partner ensures we are held in high regard in the region."
Respondents to the Acritas Asia Pacific Law Firm Brand Index were asked about their awareness of and favourability towards law firms; their consideration of firms for top-level litigation and major M&A; multi-jurisdictional litigation and deals; as well as their use of firms for high value work.
Interviews were conducted across all industry sectors in 2017 and up until June 2018.
