Midsize Hot List

The National Law Journal here spotlights 20 law firms that in no way are stuck in the shadows cast by giant competitors. As clients demand better value for their legal spend and potential laterals more satisfaction from their careers, these firms know they’re in a good spot. They also know that it takes keen business strategy to capitalize on that position. The firms we’ve selected for our Midsize Hot List are led by forward-thinking attorneys who are guiding their organizations in new practice directions, amassing more business in mainstay practices and spreading into new regions. They all have one thing in common: They’re midsize, and they like it. — Leigh Jones
