Mayer Brown announced today that the firm has been named to Global Investigations Review’s (GIR) inaugural “GIR 30” list of the “most trusted” firms in the world for cross-border investigations work. Each GIR 30 firm “has earned the trust of its clients, of other law firms and, importantly, of the government agencies in the jurisdictions in which it operates,” the publication said. Ranked in the top half of the list at the 14th spot, Mayer Brown is a “go-to firm for major corporates under criminal investigation” with a “global network of offices” and an “impressive line-up of ex-prosecutors,” GIR said.

GIR editors chose and ranked the 30 top firms based on “number of active cases, how high-profile those are, the number of leading figures at a firm, and the hours billed,” among other criteria. GIR is a news service providing global coverage of government enforcement and regulation.
