Atlanta (December 2016) – Corporate Vision, an international business publication, has named Morris, Manning & Martin Georgia’s Most Influential Law Firm of 2016. The magazine will announce the honor in its December issue.
The monthly magazine says the honor indicates the firm met specific criteria between November 2015 and November 2016. Those criteria include expanding into new jurisdictions or specialties, showing excellence within one or more specialist areas, and having a clear progressive training program for junior team members.
In the past year MMM has demonstrated innovation in many ways. The firm created several new practice areas, including The Transactional Franchise group and the Internet of Things (IoT) group, and continued the growth of its Drone practice, which started in September 2015. Internally, the firm also strengthened its associate mentoring and training programs through its new Retention, Recruiting and Training Committee and created a new two-day interviewing program to recruit first-year associates. Another strong demonstration of MMM’s innovation in the last year is the establishment of the firm’s 20/20 Committee, an outreach that gives millennial lawyers more of a say in the firm’s direction and serves as a “test lab” for new processes and technologies at the firm. Further, MMM received national and local recognition in several influential law firm rankings, including being recognized for setting the “Legal Website standard for excellence.”
Corporate Vision describes itself as an invaluable resource for leaders and decision makers looking to improve and transform the way they manage their operations, staff, technology, business partnerships and supply chains with a view to creating a more profitable and successful business. The magazine says its research team assesses law firms that stand out from the crowd in innovation, creativity and leading the industry in terms of new processes, systems or procedures.
