To develop the ranking, surveys associates at U.S. based law firms on a range of elements, including formal and informal training, firm culture, compensation and hours. Another consideration is pro bono work, an area in which Patton Boggs ranked #1 in this year's survey and has ranked in the top five every year since 2008. 

"Patton Boggs offers lawyers great latitude and flexibility in charting their professional course, which greatly contributes to professional satisfaction and on-the-job happiness," said Kara Reidy, director of professional recruitment and retention at the firm. "Our rank reflects our philosophy that happy lawyers make good lawyers, which ultimately benefits our clients as well as our firm." 

"Creating a challenging and satisfying work environment is one of our core objectives," added Edward J. Newberry, managing partner of Patton Boggs. "I can think of no better evidence of our progress than the responses of associates to the survey.  We look forward to continued success in creating the very best culture and work environment of any law firm."
