WTO a Top 5 Midsize Law Firm to Work For

Date: 09.16.15

DENVER: Vault has recognized Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell as one of the Best Midsize Law Firms to Work For in 2016. The firm ranked fifth overall based on research gathered in Vault’s annual Law Firm Associate Survey.

More than 17,000 associates across the country rated and commented on various aspects of their work life, including overall satisfaction, hours, compensation, substantive work, business outlook, firm culture, career outlook, associate/partner relations, leadership transparency, formal training, and mentoring.

“We know WTO is different,” said managing partner Carolyn Fairless, “and this is wonderful recognition of our efforts not only to give associates opportunities they won’t find at other firms, but of exactly how well our model serves our clients, our firm, and our lawyers. If clients aren’t happy, if the firm isn’t thriving, then our lawyers won’t find the satisfaction in work that this ranking reflects.”

According to the survey, WTO associates told Vault, “Informal mentoring at WTO is incredible . . . and partners go out of their way to lend advice or give background,” and “My colleagues are some of my closest friends. There is a no-jerks rule that applies equally to partners and associates.”

Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell LLP represents some of the nation's best-known entities and professionals in civil disputes that threaten their businesses, brands, reputations, people, and relationships. Since 2010, WTO lawyers have won 41 complex civil trials and 31 significant appeals nationwide. Our lawyers serve as national counsel in high-stakes trials, appeals, arbitrations, and related complex matters, including class actions, mass torts, and multidistrict litigation.
