Associates Rate V&E Best in Two Categories in Vault’s 2021 Law Firm Rankings

Vinson & Elkins once again claimed two top spots in Vault’s 2021 Law Firm Rankings, an annual assessment of the nation’s most prestigious firms as voted upon by associates.

V&E was rated the most prestigious firm in Texas for the fourth year in a row, as well having the nation’s strongest practice for Energy, Oil, & Gas for the seventh consecutive year.

In addition, the firm’s Clean Tech/Renewable Energy practice was ranked among the nation’s Top 5, and five other practices were recognized as well, including Project Finance, Mergers & Acquisitions, Emerging Companies & Venture Capital, General Corporate, and Securities/Capital Markets. V&E also rated in two categories each in Vault’s Best Law Firms to Work For and Best Summer Associate Programs.

This year, more than 20,000 associates returned anonymous surveys to Vault to determine the various rankings. Vault’s region-based rankings are determined by associates who are asked to rate the local prestige of firms in their region but are not permitted to rate their own firm. For practice area rankings, attorneys are asked to vote for up to three firms they consider strongest in their own practice area, but are not permitted to vote for their own firm.
