Foley Hoag Earns High Rankings in 2012 American Lawyer Midlevel Associates and Summer Associate Surveys

September 14, 2012

Foley Hoag LLP has recently earned high rankings in two surveys conducted by The American Lawyer.

The firm was ranked the eighth best law firm to work for in the United States in the annual American Lawyer's Midlevel Associates Survey, which is based on responses from third-, fourth-, and fifth-year associates. A firm's national score is the average of 12 questions on the survey that summarize the firm's qualities, including the interest and satisfaction levels of work; benefits and compensation; relations between associates and partners; training and guidance; management's openness about firm strategies and partnership chances; the firm's attitude toward pro bono work; billable hours policy; and the likelihood of the associate being at the firm in two years. The results were published in the September 2012 edition of The American Lawyer magazine.

In addition, Foley Hoag ranked second in the country in American Lawyer's annual Summer Associate Survey, the results of which are based on the average of nine survey queries. The firm garnered perfect scores on questions concerning how interesting the work is; how much real work was assigned; training and guidance; partner interactions with summer associates; associate interactions with summer associates; how accurately the firm portrayed itself during the interview process; and the overall rating of the firm as a place to work. The rankings will appear in a forthcoming edition of The American Lawyer.
