ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Giant among Mortals
Kind of like Oprah or Prince, Skadden is a giant among mortals. Known by its one name, it sits atop its world, continuously topping the AmLaw 100 as one of the most profitable law firms. It was the first law firm to report $1 billion in annual revenue—now an industry brass ring. But it’s not just about the money or numbers—Skadden consistently draws top accolades from the most esteemed rankings: Chambers, The American Lawyer, The National Law Journal and the Financial Times. The firm also gets regular annual kudos from industry-specific publications—such as Corporate Board Member’s ranking of “America’s Best Corporate Law Firms”—and overseas rankings.Become a Gold Member or Log in to read the entire Scoop
