Back on Top: Munger Tolles No. 1 on A-List

Munger, Tolles & Olson returned to No. 1 on The American Lawyer’s A-List, which appears in the magazine’s July issue.

The A-List identifies “firms that represent the legal industry’s all-around best,” by ranking law firms based on a weighted combination of four core professional values: revenue per lawyer, pro bono practice, associate satisfaction and workplace diversity.

“Propelled by an increase in its pro bono score, Munger leaped from third place last year to reclaim the first place ranking that it held consecutively from 2008 to 2010,” the magazine reported, noting the firm’s pro bono work in “matters involving the military’s combat exclusion policy and California legislation that targeted gay conversion therapy.”

Not only has Munger Tolles held the top spot on the A-List for four of the last six years, it is the only non-New York firm ever ranked No. 1.
