The American Lawyer Associates Survey

The American Lawyer annually surveys midlevel associates nationally and compiles a ranking based on their overall satisfaction. Nossaman is proud to announce our national ranking, 25th in overall associate satisfaction out of 189 firms that participated. In addition, Nossaman is the 5th ranked firm nationally that is California based, the 4th ranked firm in Orange County and the 10th ranked firm among Non-Am Law 200 firms nationally (third among California based firms).

American Lawyer defines midlevel associates for the 2007 survey as those who graduated from law school in 2002, 2003 and 2004. Though 189 firms participated, only 164 firms submitted the minimum 10 completed surveys to be included in the results.

On a scale of 1 to 5 the national average score for associate satisfaction is 3.8, at Nossaman that number is 4.1. Our highest scores were a 4.6 average in the overall rating as a place to work, a 4.6 average in the level of responsibility and a 4.5 average score in the collegiality of the firm.

The results of the 2007 midlevel associate survey were published in the August issue of The American Lawyer. More information about the survey, results and methodology is available at
