DALLAS – McKool Smith is recognized as one of the country’s leading firms for commercial litigation and intellectual property law in the first-ever “Best Law Firms” rankings from U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America.

The exclusive listing of top U.S. law firms appears in the October 2010 edition of U.S. News & World Report and at U.S. News.com.

In addition to the firm’s national rankings, McKool Smith’s Austin office is recognized as one of the city’s top intellectual property practices, and the Dallas office is noted for its work in commercial litigation and intellectual property law. The list also names McKool Smith’s Houston office as home to one of the city’s top bankruptcy practices.

“Commercial litigation, intellectual property and bankruptcy matters represent the bulk of what we do at McKool Smith, so it’s very gratifying to be recognized for our work in each of these areas,” says firm co-founder Mike McKool.

The list is based on more than a year of research and interviews with more than 9,500 different law firm clients and 8,000 U.S. lawyers who were asked to identify those law firms they consider to be the tops in the nation. Every Fortune 100 company was surveyed in addition to nearly 600 companies in the Fortune 1000.

Earlier this year, McKool Smith was named one of the country’s top four intellectual property litigation firms by Managing Intellectual Property magazine. The firm also was named to the 2010 Midsize Hot List in The National Law Journal, which includes the top 20 U.S. law firms with fewer than 150 attorneys.
