CHARLESTON -- Spilman Thomas & Battle PLLC recently announced the magazine Corporate Counsel has highlighted it as one of the "Go-To law firms" for 2008.

This distinction is awarded every year by a systematic approach. Each of the general counsels for the top 500 companies in the United States are asked to list which outside law firms they turn to for assistance in a variety of practice areas, including litigation, corporate transactions/mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, intellectual property, securities, Canadian law and international law.

E. I. du Pont de Nemours Company again has named Spilman as one of its "go to" firms for labor and employment, as they have for the past several years. American International Group (AIG) recently named Spilman in the litigation category.

According to Corporate Counsel, "Since no firms can 'buy their way on,' less than one-half of one percent of all of the law firms in the U.S. and abroad are included."

Eric W. Iskra, Member in Charge of Client Relations at Spilman, is proud of the distinction.

"When a client retains our services, they are getting more than a law firm," Iskra said. "They are getting a partner. Our commitment to excellence is a hallmark of our success and we are pleased that our clients consider us the firm to go to for all types of matters."

With more than 110 attorneys, Spilman Thomas & Battle has offices in Charleston, Morgantown and Wheeling in West Virginia; Pittsburgh; Winston-Salem, N.C.; and Roanoke, Va.
