Foley & Lardner LLP ranked 22nd among 85 firms nationwide in summer associate satisfaction, according to The American Lawyer’s 2018 Summer Associates Survey.
Foley’s ranking improved 44 spots this year from its 66th place showing in last year’s survey.
In addition, Foley’s Dallas and Milwaukee offices took the top spots in the survey’s city-specific rankings. And its Chicago and Washington, D.C. offices placed fifth and 13th, respectively, in their city-specific rankings.
Firms are ranked by their average scores in nine categories, including the quality and interest level of the assigned work, training and guidance, partner and associate interaction, communication, and the accuracy of the firm’s self-portrayal.
Foley received an average satisfaction score nationally of 4.878 out of 5, more than 1/10th of a point higher than the average score for all firms. That reflected a marked improvement from last year in several categories, and included near-perfect scores in partner and associate interaction, communication of goals and expectations, and firm self-portrayal.
