Nutter Ranks No. 1 Nationally for Associate SatisfactionPrint PDF
Nutter ranked No. 1 in the nation for associate satisfaction, according to a recent survey by The American Lawyer.
The annual survey rated answers from more than 7,000 associates from 180 firms. Nutter topped the list with particularly high scores in the areas of partner-associate relations, work satisfaction, collegiality and benefits and compensation.
“We place a high value on the work that our associates do on behalf of the firm,” said Michael Mooney, Nutter’s managing partner. “Nutter’s success depends on the success of the lawyers who practice here, and we believe that in order for them to succeed, they must be inspired, challenged and supported. We are proud to be ranked so highly among our peers.”
Key to the success of Nutter associates is access to senior-level guidance and meaningful work. This structure led Nutter to receive a perfect score on associates’ opportunity to work with partners. In addition, Nutter associates ranked the quality of work they are assigned 17 percent higher than the national average – a number The American Lawyer directly correlates to tenure at the firm. Again, on this measurement, Nutter scored 20 percent higher than the national average, with the majority of associates expecting to be with the firm in two years.
