July 24, 2018

Firm Ranked on Prestigious List for Seventh Year Running


NEW YORK—July 24, 2018—O’Melveny has been named to The American Lawyer’s “A-List” for the seventh consecutive year. The firm moved up three spots this year, placing among the top 10 firms on the prestigious ranking, which takes a holistic view of law firms by considering revenue per lawyer, pro bono, racial diversity, percentage of female equity partners, and associate satisfaction scores.

In awarding O’Melveny the #9 position on its scale of “most well-rounded” firms, The American Lawyer highlighted the firm’s “near-perfect associate satisfaction score,” as well as increases in its ratings for pro bono work and percentage of female equity partners.

“We are extremely proud to once again be named to The American Lawyer’s A-List, which sets the bar for excellence in the legal field,” said Bradley J. Butwin, O’Melveny’s Chair. “This recognition speaks to how we define success for ourselves: doing meaningful work for our clients and communities, preserving our rich firm culture, and providing a rewarding, welcoming workplace for our people. This honor is a tribute to all the incredible people who make O’Melveny such a great place to work.”

O’Melveny’s A-List designation follows other awards the firm has recently received in recognition of its strong culture, including Vault’s Best Firm to Work For and Best Summer Associate Program and Euromoney’s Best International Firm for Women in Business Law.
