Best Law Firms by Region

Associates rate the reputations of peer firms in their own regions. These rankings reveal the most prestigious law firms by region across the U.S. Vault's 2021 Rankings are derived from Vault's Annual Associate Survey conducted between late January 2020 through early April 2020.
Survey Methodology

Sometimes all you care about is how a firm stacks up against its peer firms in a particular region of the country. That’s where our regional rankings come in. Each regional ranking is based on ratings from associates who actually work in that region and who were asked to rate firms based on local prestige. This year’s regional rankings include the following locations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Florida, the Mid-Atlantic, the Midwest, Mountain States, New York, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, the South Atlantic, Southern California, Texas, and Washington, DC.

Vault's 2021 Rankings are derived from Vault's Annual Associate Survey conducted between late January 2020 through early April 2020.
