Varnum Ranked in National Law Journal's NLJ 350
Varnum was recognized as a top law firm in The National Law Journal's NLJ 350 ranking, an annual survey which identifies and ranks the largest law firms in the United States.
Varnum was ranked 286 in the survey and was cited as a "go-to" firm for Fortune 500 companies. Firms are ranked based on headcount, locations, partners, associates and other attorneys.
The first NLJ list was published in 1978 by the National Law Journal listing the nation's top 200 firms. This list expanded to include 250 top firms in 1983, and this year the NLJ implemented its largest expansion to include 350 of the largest law firms in the United States.
The increased number provides a closer look at the growing midsize law firm market, as it now includes a number of top regional firms located outside big cities. The firms ranked numbers 251 to 350 are more geographically diverse than the traditional list. Seven Michigan-based firms are included in the NLJ 350.
