Once again, Vault has ranked the 100 most prestigious law firms. Here is the list. Vault bases its rankings on a survey of nearly 17,000 associates. Here are the top 10.
1. Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz
2. Cravath, Swaine & Moore
3. Sullivan & Cromwell
4. Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
5. Davis Polk & Wardwell
6. Weil, Gotshal & Manges
7. Simpson Thacher & Bartlett
8. Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton
9. Kirkland & Ellis
10. Latham & Watkins
Do they have anything in common? Yes, they are big city law firms that are largely interchangeable, at least to the outsider.
