NEW YORK, March 15, 2013

NEW YORK, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Chambers Global has named Morrison &
Foerster its 2013 USA Law Firm of the Year. "The US-based global giant," the
editors said in announcing the honor, "has experienced one of the most
successful years in its long and illustrious history."

The award is based on the firm's recent high-profile deals and cases across a
wide range of practices around the world. Drawing from research for its 2013
global guide, published on March 14, the editors of Chambers relied on
feedback from clients and other law firms to select the winner.

"We are deeply honored that this recognition reflects the opinions of our
clients and peers," Morrison & Foerster Chair Larren M. Nashelsky said. "Our
clients entrust us with their most challenging and complex matters, and we
thank them for that. Everyone at MoFo deserves credit for this, and our
trademark excellent work and unwavering devotion to clients. We appreciate
that Chambers Global has honored MoFo by selecting us from among the highest
caliber law firms in the country."

The Chambers Global editors cited MoFo's "landmark victories and engagements
in the IP arena," which included the firm's work on the global smartphone
disputes that spawned the patent trial of our time and a massive jury verdict
for our client, "headlines in the bankruptcy arena with its representation of
ResCap and the Chapter 11 trustee of MF Global," and "superb national and
trans-Pacific capabilities," highlighted by MoFo's representation of SoftBank
in its acquisition of Sprint, the biggest outbound transaction from Asia ever.
