O’Melveny Tops Vault’s 2017 Rankings in Two Important Categories

July 13, 2016


Firm Named “Best Firm to Work For” and “Best Summer Associate Program Overall”

New York, New York — July 13, 2016 — O’Melveny has been named Best Firm to Work For and Best Summer Associate Program Overall in the recently released Vault 2017 Law Firm Rankings. Both rankings capped a steady trend upward over the last several years, moving up from #3 and #2, respectively, in the 2016 Guide.

O’Melveny’s scored well in several “Quality of Life” categories, too.  The firm placed in the top 10 for most of the 19 categories, including Substantive Work (#2), Transparency (#2), and Associate/Partner Relations (#4), each outcome representing an improvement over previous years. The firm also saw increases in several of its practice area scores.

“We are extremely pleased by these Vault rankings,” Firm Chair Bradley J. Butwin said. “They are the result of hard work, creative planning and productive partnering with our associates at all levels to produce programs that work and are rewarding.”

Vault, a print and online career resource that provides employer ratings and reviews, polls law firm associates and counsel annually to determine the best firms on a variety of measures.
