Kirkland & Ellis LLP was honored by The American Lawyer as one of the top 20 U.S. law firms on its prestigious A-List.
Launched in 2003, the A-List examines factors beyond profits to better understand the qualities that define an elite law firm. The methodology examines revenue per lawyer, pro bono commitment, attorney diversity and associate training and satisfaction. To determine the A-List scores, data is pulled from four surveys that rate Am Law 200 firms' performances in several areas for 2008. The firms' ranks are converted to points by inverting the score. Then values are weighted to determine the overall scores.
