Giving some of the firms you have discovered to be missing might be helpful? Wilson Elser, a non-NALP firm is there, so it isn't as narrow as NALP was or is. Maybe the firm's small? Or too generalist to trigger a category listing?

You're thinking Chambers & Partners, the site that rates practice areas. Chambers Associate gives an overview of the firm to help prospective associates differentiate between places.

Ahh, my bad. I have the old 2010 edition of Chambers Associates that lists almost all of the major firms, including Covington. If anyone thinks such information could be useful, PM.
