Cincinnati, OH – Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP ranked #139 in number of attorneys, with 337, in the recently-released list of The National Law Journal 250 for 2008. The National Law Journal (NLJ) represents an annual survey of the nation’s largest law firms.
For Taft, the move to #139 this year represents a jump from #200 in last year’s ranking. The increase is particularly notable in a year where overall growth at the 250 largest law firms was significantly slower than in recent years.
Thomas Terp, Taft’s Managing Partner, said, “Our strategic growth this year – particularly in Indianapolis and Cleveland – will help us improve and broaden the services we offer to our current clients and has brought important new clients to the firm. We are thrilled to have added more than 120 additional first-rate lawyers from 2007 to 2008.”
The results of the 2008 NLJ 250 indicate that law firms continued to add attorneys to meet clients’ needs – domestically and abroad. The 2008 NLJ 250 is based on attorney census information covering the period between October 1, 2007 and September 30, 2008, which was provided by the nation’s 300 largest firms.
