Top 150 Under 150

Congratulations to the Top 150 Under 150, Vault’s list of leading midsize law firms. Vault created this list to recognize outstanding law firms with fewer attorneys, but no less expertise, than the global megafirms that often dominate rankings and headlines (and that are featured in Vault’s Top 100 list).

Looking for a career at a top law firm, but wary of the danger of being a small fish in a big pond? Consider Vault’s Top 150 Under 150, leading small and midsize firms where you may take on more responsibility sooner, enjoy a higher quality of life, and yes, have a better chance at making partner.

To determine the Top 150 Under 150, Vault first developed a list of the best-known and most sought-after U.S. firms with fewer than 150 attorneys. Our editorial and research teams pored through Vault survey data, news stories, trade journals and other legal publications; spoke with lawyers in the field and reviewed other published rankings. Vault editors also assessed each firm for prestige, quality of life and professional growth opportunities, and then narrowed down the results to come up with a list of 150 law firms known for providing top-notch service and delivering big results.

As it would be impossible, and not particularly helpful, to compare an IP boutique with 30 lawyers in Palo Alto to a full-service firm with 145 attorneys in Boston, the firms are not ranked. Rather, the Top 150 Under 150 is a recognition of leading law firms with fewer attorneys, but no less expertise, than the global megafirms that often dominate rankings and headlines.
