These days, branding is pervasive in just about all aspects of our lives. We see the way celebrities take advantage of self-branding.

Interesting results posted recently in The Strongest Law Firm Brands in the Land which delineates a study on law firm brand recognition by brand research company, Acritas?

The results included Skadden, Jones Day, Kirkland & Ellis, Sidley Austin, and Wachtell.

The rankings apparently changed slightly on favorability as opposed to which were best known.

Place Still Counts.
