Best Midsize Law Firms to Work For

Vault’s ranking of the leading midsize firms based on what associates say their work life is really like.

  • Survey Methodology

    To determine Vault's Best Midsize Firms to Work For, we use a formula that weighs the most relevant categories for an overall quality of life ranking at a midsize firm. Associates were asked to rate their firm on a 1-to-10 scale for each of several quality of life categories. Each firm's overall score was calculated using the following formula:

    • 25 percent overall satisfaction • 10 percent hours • 10 percent compensation • 10 percent business outlook • 10 percent quality of work • 10 percent culture • 5 percent associate/partner relations • 5 percent leadership transparency • 5 percent formal training • 5 percent informal training and mentoring • 5 percent career outlook

    These rankings are based on perceptions of attorneys who work at each firm--some of whom may be biased in favor (or against) their firms.
