WHERE ELITE LITIGATION BOUTIQUES HIRE
JUNE 2012

We looked at where partners and associates at the top five litigation boutiques for 2012 according to Vault earned their law degree.  We limited the study only to those who earned the degree since the year 2000.  The firms studied were Susman Godfrey (headquartered in Houston, but with offices nationally); Keker & Van Nest (San Francisco);  Bartlit Beck (Chicago); Kellogg Huber (Washington, DC); and Morvillo, Abramowitz (New York).   These firms tend to be the most selective legal employers in the nation, and set the standard for compensation for attorneys as well.

The first chart ranks the schools by a kind of “per capita” measure (the total number of attorneys at these boutique firms divided by the size of the recent graduating class, rounded to the nearest 25); the second chart ranks the schools by the total number of alumni at these firms.  The remaining charts show the representation of each school at each of the five firms.
