SHANGHAI, CHINA ─ APRIL 27, 2011 ─ O’Melveny & Myers LLP was named one of the top five employers in the 2011 China Employer of Choice international law firm rankings conducted by Asian Legal Business, an independent international magazine.
O’Melveny was evaluated by both its lawyers and more than 10,000 private practice lawyers throughout China, with more weight given to the responses from attorneys outside the Firm. All respondents were asked to rank the survey’s designated law firms according to six areas: compensation and benefits, knowledge management and IT, work and clients, work-life balance, professional development, and strongest employment brand.
The publication provides competitive survey results for international law firms based on the highest cumulative votes across the six categories.
