Chambers' comments:

USA Ranking: Tier 2

This firm's outsourcing capabilities are largely based in Illinois, where it acts for clients such as Fortune Brands, Morgan Stanley, ProLogis, Sun Microsystems and USG. The team is praised for its cutting-edge advice on outsourcing matters, ranging from IT transactions to BPOs. At its key office in Chicago, Gregg Kirchhoefer has a tremendous depth of experience, while BPO and IP expert Neil Hirshman "is able to bring parties together instead of pushing them apart." In California, Stephen Johnson has strong IP expertise, which encompasses the outsourcing of major functions and advising on new transaction structures. The team can handle global deals with ease, drawing on its network of international offices.
