In 2007, Williams Mullen ranked 185 out of 200 nationwide law firms. This year, Williams Mullen moved up 21 positions, placing 164th in the ranking.

“Williams Mullen’s strategic plan for increasing our number of attorneys and expanding our practice areas has been fueled by the demands of our clients. Incorporating additional specializations and supporting attorney groups and staff have allowed us to maintain our spot as one of the largest law firms in the Southeast,” said Williams Mullen president and CEO, Julious P. Smith, Jr.
