LOS ANGELES ─ AUGUST 27, 2015 ─ O’Melveny & Myers LLP posted its best showing ever in The American Lawyer’s Midlevel Associates Survey, ranking third — up from seventh in 2014 and the Firm’s fifth straight year of gains.  The annual survey measures the job satisfaction of third-, fourth-, and fifth-year lawyers at the country’s largest law firms.

In the survey’s regional rankings, O’Melveny also scored highly with the Newport Beach office taking first place, and the New York and Los Angeles/Century City offices placing second.  In addition, O’Melveny’s Washington, DC, office ranked third; Silicon Valley, fourth; and San Francisco, fifth.

“The Midlevel Associates Survey, as well as our strong recent showings in The American Lawyer’s prestigious A-List, Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers’ Best Firms for Women, and the annual Vault rankings, showcases just some of what makes O’Melveny special — challenging, interesting work; a steadfast commitment to diversity and pro bono; and an open and collegial environment where we value everyone’s contributions,” O’Melveny Chair Bradley J. Butwin said.

The Midlevel Associates Survey asks associates about topics including the interest level of their work, compensation and benefits, and their firm’s attitude toward pro bono work.  The American Lawyer then scores the participating firms based on their associates’ viewpoints.  Ninety-five percent of O’Melveny’s eligible associates participated in the 2015 survey, the highest participation rate among the top 50 firms.
