Pittsburgh, PA, May 11, 2011 — Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC has been named the top corporate law firm in Pittsburgh, according to Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting Inc.'s 11th annual Legal Research Industry Study.

Respondents selected the five local firms from the provided list, or as a write-in, that they would most likely select to aid their companies on a broad range of corporate legal issues.

Pittsburgh was one of 25 metropolitan areas included in the study. Results are published in the most recent edition (2Q 2011 issue) of Corporate Board Member magazine.
