Award The American Lawyer

The A-List

Kirkland & Ellis has been named to The American Lawyer’s A-List.

The A-List aims to identify the country's most well-rounded law firms via a measure of their success in four core areas: financial performance, pro bono, diversity and midlevel associate satisfaction. To determine the A-List, scores are pulled from four surveys that rate Am Law 200 firms' performances in these areas. The total score is calculated by doubling each firm's RPL and pro bono scores and adding those to the firms' associate satisfaction and diversity scores.  The 20 top-scoring firms comprise the A-List.
