Innovation is the name of the game at Orrick – from the energy and technology customers the company advises, to its impactful wellness initiatives, to its cutting-edge technology tools. Down-to-earth, collaborative and forward-thinking employees will fit perfectly into this progressive company. Orrick is a global law firm with more than 1,100 lawyers passionate about teamwork and innovation. The company has dozens of offices around the world, including national locations in California, New York, Oregon and Texas. With more than 1,600 lawyers in 10 countries, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher is a force. As one of the best law firms in the country, Gibson Dunn is known for its litigation and litigation work, especially for its busy appellate litigation. “Perkins Coie is definitely a company to watch,” Sheridan said. “He has steadily gained prestige, and with the results for 2022, it looks like he could be a contender for the top 25 in the coming years.” Paul Hastings consistently ranks among the top quality of life law firms, prioritizing mentorship, training and long-term career development. Lawyers looking for a friendly and collaborative atmosphere where hard work and client service are valued are likely to be a good fit for the firm. Over the past few decades, Paul Hastings has grown from a mid-sized U.S. law firm to an international firm with labor, tax and business law strengths and well-known clients in more than 80 countries. With offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo, the company has become particularly strong in the Asian market. While New York is home to some of the most elite law firms, the spotlight has turned to other markets in recent years.

But it seems to be back in the Big Apple — this year`s top 100 ranking marked an increase in the number of companies with New York roots. In fact, about a quarter of the companies that have moved up two or more places in the top 100 are based in New York, including Milbank LLP (No. 23), Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP (No. 36), Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP (No. 46), Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP (No. 79) and Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP (No. 92). Not to mention, the majority of the top 10 companies in the Vault Law 100 are from New York. As a legal market, New York is second only to London in terms of complexity and size.

Therefore, we thought it would be useful to break down our satisfaction survey into types of companies. What you`ll see below are the top employee satisfaction companies, grouped by their identity in the legal market. We collected all the surveys and averaged the score for each company. The companies were then ranked in order, starting with the highest average prestige score as not. 1 down to determine the Vault 100 law. Keep in mind that Vault doesn`t rank in the top 100 companies based on profit, size, lifestyle, number of stores, or quality of service. We evaluate the most prestigious law firms based on the perception of practicing lawyers in peer firms. Of course, many companies identify with more than one category: Davis Polk belongs to the elite both globally and in New York; Cravath, Sullivan or Debevoise, although known internationally, have smaller networks and New York is really where their nerve centers are; then the elite British companies of the Magic Circle have greater global strength than most American companies, but would not be considered first-rate in New York alone. With an impressive global presence and a world-class client list, Sidley is the crème de la crème when it comes to law firms. Come for the demanding work and stay for the polite and friendly atmosphere of the Midwest – as well as a genuine commitment to building a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Sidley is a global leader with approximately 2,000 lawyers in 20 offices. The company has a long list of clients in a number of industries, including banking, energy, healthcare, insurance, life sciences and technology. The firm`s work in complex transactions and litigation is supported by exceptional regulatory experience, and the firm includes many former public servants in Europe, the United States and China. In this year`s Top 100, four companies posted impressive gains in the rankings: Perkins Coie LLP, which moved up 10 places to 33rd place; Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, which climbed eight places to 36th place; Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, which moved up six places to 55th; and Kellogg, Hansen, Todd, Figel & Frederick, P.L.L.C., which jumped seven places to 90th place.
