American Lawyer Survey Names Honigman Among Top 10 Law Firms in U.S. for Attorney Satisfaction
Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP was ranked the 10th best law firm in the U.S. to work for according to a recent national survey of midlevel associates conducted by American Lawyer magazine.
Honigman was also recognized for consistently providing a satisfying working environment for its associates. It has been named by the annual American Lawyer survey as one of the top 25 firms eight times in the past 20 years. Only four other law firms in the entire country have had a better record.
More than 6,500 associates from 175 law firms nationwide participated in the publication's 20th Annual Midlevel Associate Survey. Associates were asked about their satisfaction levels at work based on several criteria, including benefits and compensation offered, the relationships between associates and partners, and training and guidance offered at the firm.
"I am very pleased with Honigman's ranking," said Alan S. Schwartz, CEO of Honigman. "We actively work to create a rewarding work environment for our employees, associates and partners with innovations like our Women's Initiative and numerous professional development programs. The survey results confirm the success of these programs and our efforts to encourage and involve our attorneys."
Associates from Honigman's offices in Detroit, Bloomfield Hills and Lansing, Michigan participated in the survey. Honigman scored above the national average on 11 of the 12 key scoring questions including the likelihood that an associate will stay with Honigman for at least two years, satisfaction with work and providing a realistic billable hours policy.
Founded in 1948, Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP is a business law firm based in Detroit with additional offices in Lansing and Oakland County, Michigan.
