Rounding out Vault Law’s 2024 rankings season, the midsize rankings for regional prestige and quality of life are official, as is the 2024 Top 150 Under 150 list. “Susman Godfrey held onto its No.1 spots in New York and Texas, and Barack Ferrazzano did the same in Chicago,” said Carter Isham, Senior Law Editor at Vault. “And Virginia-based IP firm Harrity & Harrity ranked in the top two spots in 12 quality of life subcategories, helping re-capture its spot as No.1 Overall Best Midsize Law Firm to Work For.”

The No. 1 Midsize Best Law Firms by Region are:

Chicago: Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg LLP

New York: Susman Godfrey LLP

According to associates, the firm “makes extraordinary efforts to create an environment where all employees are valued and feel connected with each other.”
