Each year The American Lawyer highlights 20 firms that manage to combine enviable revenues with impressive pro bono dockets, contented associates and diversity in their lawyer ranks. The firms are chosen based on survey scores for revenue per lawyer, pro bono, associate satisfaction and diversity, giving double weight to the revenue and pro bono scores. Read on to meet the 2015 winners.
