Dallas - The law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP is proud to announce its Leading Firm ranking for being shortlisted as a leader in the Chambers Associate 2018 surveys conducted by Chambers & Partners. The Firm is also featured as a high achiever in the categories of “Associate Satisfaction” and “Associate Retention.”
Associates surveyed by the directory recognized Thompson & Knight for its stability, saying the Firm “attracts people who want to be in it for the long haul – they want people who want to make partner here. It's very rare to see people leave.” The surveyed associates also appreciate feeling valued at Thompson & Knight, particularly the fact that the Firm “really invests in its young associates, via training and both formal and informal mentorships.” They said, “the partners want you to get more than just the typical diligence experience early on; they'll give you as much as you can handle.”
Thompson & Knight is recognized for demonstrating excellent performance in “Associate Satisfaction” and “Associate Retention”, ranking 9th in both categories. To determine “The Most Satisfied Associates” rankings, Chambers Associate asked associates to rate their firms on all of the variables that make lawyers happy. Associates were asked how stressed they were, their intention to stay at the firm, how much the work motivates them, and the firm’s value to them in their career. The “Retention Survey” asked associates to rate their firm on how much value the firm’s name added to their resume, their intent to stay at the firm, how it matched their perceptions before joining, the level of responsibility and client contact, their autonomy over work acquisition, their opportunities to establish themselves in a practice area, the quality of training, their contact time with partners, and how much partners were nurturing future leaders.
