WilmerHale Advances on The American Lawyer’s “A-List” of the Nation’s Elite Firms

June 28, 2007

WilmerHale ranked eighth among the firms in The American Lawyer “A-List” for 2007. This is the fifth year that the “A-List” has been compiled—a listing of the top 20 firms from among the “AmLaw 200” firms—and the fifth time the firm has made the list.

The “A-List” measures the performance of “AmLaw 200” firms in four areas: revenue per lawyer, pro bono, associate satisfaction, and diversity. The law firms on the “A-List” were drawn from The American Lawyer's data collected from its annual “AmLaw 200,” pro bono, and associate satisfaction surveys, and the “Diversity Scorecard” compiled by sibling publication, Minority Law Journal.

WilmerHale’s Co-Managing Partners, William F. Lee and William J. Perlstein, said in response to the “A-List” ranking: “Our Firm’s overarching goal is to be both professionally and economically successful, while maintaining and enhancing our own unique culture. While there is no single measure of our success in achieving this balance, this ranking is one and we are pleased to be recognized by The American Lawyer in this way.”
