Stites & Harbison Receives Multiple Honors

Stites & Harbison has been honored by two prestigious legal publications for their work on clients’ behalf.

First, Incisive Media recently named Stites & Harbison as a 2008 Go-To Law Firm® for Leading Financial Services Companies. The firm was named a Go-To Law Firm® for legal work done in the areas of Litigation and Labor & Employment. Less than one-half of one percent of all law firms in the U.S. and abroad receive the Go-To Law Firm® honor.

In addition, 45 Stites & Harbison attorneys firmwide were recognized in Super Lawyers magazine. Super Lawyers is a guide compiled by Law & Politics Magazine that honors exceptional attorneys, representing a wide range of practice areas, firm sizes and geographic locations. Winners are selected using a multi-step process, including lawyer nominations, peer evaluations and internal research. Only 5% of the lawyers in each state or region are named in Super Lawyers.

Go-To Law Firms® were identified through research conducted by Incisive Media. Researchers asked general counsel at the leading financial services companies which outside law firms they turn to for assistance. Incisive Media’s research department also investigated and gathered data on financial services’ company’s Go-To Law Firms® from various public records resources including court dockets and securities filings, as well as legal and business publications, including The American Lawyer®.

Incisive Media, publisher of Corporate Counsel® magazine, the nation’s leading magazine for general counsel and in-house attorneys at corporations across the country, will publish the second annual reference guide to in-house law departments at the nation’s leading financial services companies. The guide, In-House Law Departments at the Leading Financial Services Companies, will release this summer and will include detailed profiles and contact information for general counsel at these corporations, as well as listings of their current outside Go-To Law Firms® in various practice areas, including litigation, securities, transactions, compliance and intellectual property. The guide will be distributed to more than 10,000 general counsel at financial services companies, and will be available on the Web at
