WilmerHale has again received The American Lawyer’s most prestigious honor—a ranking on its A-List. The A-List recognizes the 20 highest ranking law firms in the nation from among the AmLaw 200. The American Lawyer’s rankings measure US law firms in four distinct areas: financial performance, pro bono commitment, associate satisfaction and diversity. This marks WilmerHale's eighth appearance on the annual A-List, established in 2003.
Also included in the July 2011 issue of The American Lawyer is the annual Pro Bono listing, which includes WilmerHale among the top 20 AmLaw 100 firms. This ranking is based on the firm’s average pro bono hours per lawyer and the percentage of lawyers with more than 20 pro bono hours last year.
“The American Lawyer has once again recognized WilmerHale as a leader in the legal industry,” commented Bill Lee, co-managing partner of WilmerHale. “We are proud to remain part of the pro bono rankings and the A-List. These results are especially meaningful, having earned them after what proved to be a tumultuous year for many law firms.”
