NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--O’Melveny & Myers LLP’s midlevel associates praised the Firm for its pro bono efforts, partner/associate relations, and overall benefits in the latest edition of The American Lawyer. The publication conducts an annual survey of third-, fourth-, and fifth-year lawyers at the country’s biggest law firms.
“We scored particularly well in the categories that reflect the values that define us—our love of challenging, interesting work, our desire to help the poor and disenfranchised through pro bono legal services, and our collective efforts to make O’Melveny an open and collegial place for all.”
The Midlevel Associate Survey asks associates to measure their job satisfaction in areas ranging from interest in their work to communication with senior leaders, then the publication ranks the participating firms based purely on their associates’ viewpoints. O’Melveny rose to ninth out of 134 firms on the 2013 list, up from 16th the year before. Among American Lawyer Top 100 firms, O’Melveny is ranked 2nd.
“These results underscore O’Melveny’s strong culture,” said Bradley J. Butwin, Chair of O’Melveny, who practices in the New York office. “We scored particularly well in the categories that reflect the values that define us—our love of challenging, interesting work, our desire to help the poor and disenfranchised through pro bono legal services, and our collective efforts to make O’Melveny an open and collegial place for all.”
