NEW YORK, July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Lawyer has once again named Morrison & Foerster to its annual A-List, which is considered to be Am Law's most prestigious ranking. Only 20 firms within the Am Law 200 are named to this list. Marking the tenth straight year that the firm has been named to the A-List, MoFo ranked #10 on the new 2013 list. Equally impressive and showing remarkable consistent performance over the last decade, MoFo ranked #7 overall and #3 for diversity on an Am Law list based on the rankings of all firms over the last 10 years.
"We are honored to be included once again among Am Law's A-List. This distinction reflects the firm's core principles – to provide our clients with the highest quality legal and business advice, to give back to the community through pro bono work, to foster a diverse workplace, and to provide associates with an environment that enables them to thrive," said Larren Nashelsky, Chair of Morrison & Foerster.
The A-List is Am Law's best overall measure of Am Law 200 firms. In addition to financial performance, Am Law considers the firms' scores in the annual survey rankings in pro bono, diversity and associate satisfaction. The one financial metric Am Law includes is revenue per lawyer, which it considers the single most important measure of a firm's financial performance. As Aric Press, the editor in chief of The American Lawyer, said in introducing the list in 2003, "The best firms are exemplars, and exemplars are important."
