AdvanceLaw is a program developed to improve the legal profession, share information on law firm performance, and identify firms that set the bar for quality, client service, efficiency, and innovation. More than 100 General Counsel at leading, multinational corporations take part in the project. Those General Counsel help select participating firms.

Ballard Spahr was chosen for inclusion based on the quality of its legal work, its cost effectiveness, the strength of its long-term client relationships, and its commitment to diversity and pro bono services. AdvanceLaw—and the inside counsel who drive the project—are committed to legal market transparency. Its performance feedback system uses data and client evaluations to measure achievement, quality, value, and efficiency.
