Best Law Firms by Practice Area

These firms were voted strongest in each practice area by associates working in that area at peer firms.

  • Survey Methodology

    To determine the Vault Practice Area Rankings, associates vote for the strongest firms in their self-identified practice area(s). Associates are able to vote for up to three firms but are not permitted to vote for their own firm. Our rankings indicate the top firms in each area, as well as the total percentage of votes.
