June 27, 2018


NEW YORK—June 27, 2018—O’Melveny has been recognized for being the “Best Firm to Work For” and having the “Best Summer Associate Program” in the Vault 2019 Law Firm Rankings. Both rankings represent a return to the #1 position the firm achieved in 2016 and mark the fourth consecutive year the firm has placed in the top three in each category.

High scores across nearly all the 18 subcategories that contribute to the overall score drove the firm’s first-place finish. O’Melveny took #1 for Firm Culture, Quality of Work, Satisfaction, Associate/Partner Relations, Transparency, Hours, and Informal Training. In addition, the firm’s summer program drew first-place scores for Career Development and Attorney Interactions. In several other areas—including Pro Bono, Career Outlook, Integration, Formal Training, and Selectivity—the firm scored within the top five of all participating firms.

O’Melveny also ranked #2 for Overall Diversity, moving up from its #3 position last year. Highlights from the firm’s strong scores in a number of diversity subcategories include first-place scores for Diversity for Individuals with Disabilities and Diversity for LGBT, second-place score for Diversity for Women, and third-place score for Diversity for Minorities.

“These remarkable Vault survey results reflect an ongoing collaboration among our leadership, talent team, and lawyers to enhance the associate and counsel experience at O’Melveny,” said Chair Bradley J. Butwin. “We are delighted that our scores reflect so many of the things that make us proud to be part of O’Melveny—the opportunity to do important work for top clients, serve our communities, and experience a great culture that values collaboration, diversity, and inclusion.”
