Munger, Tolles & Olson Again Ranks No. 1 on The American Lawyer’s A-List, Recognized for “Unparalleled Density” of Talent

On July 27, 2022, Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP was ranked number one on The American Lawyer’s A-List for the eighth time.

The A-List is the premier ranking of America’s top domestic and global law firms. Each year, only 20 law firms qualify for a spot on this list which ranks the “the most well-rounded members of the Am Law 200.” In assigning its rankings, The American Lawyer rigorously evaluates firm performance across five key financial and cultural categories: revenue per lawyer, associate satisfaction, diversity, pro bono commitment and the percentage of women equity partners. The American Lawyer specifically recognized the firm for “remain[ing] near the top in all A-List categories.” 

In discussing the secret to the firm’s success, Co-Managing Partner, Hailyn Chen, credited the firm’s “unparalleled density of legal talent” and distinctive firm culture. “[W]e hire the most talented lawyers to take on the toughest legal challenges and we allow them to do it in a uniquely democratic environment.”

Munger Tolles has the highest average A-List rankings in the listing’s 19-year history, the highest average ranking in the past 10 years and in the past five years – and once again, the firm has the most number one rankings in the history of this award.
