Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP has ranked first in Delaware and seventh in the country when compared to other firms its size, according to the 2006 American Lawyer Midlevel Associates survey.

The 2006 survey of third, fourth and fifth year associates at 175 firms across the United States probed into associates' levels of job satisfaction, including the interest and satisfaction levels of work; relations between associates and partners, training and guidance, openness about finances and strategies, billable hours policy; the firm's attitude toward pro bono work, and the likelihood of the associate being at the firm in two years.

Firm chairman James L. Patton stated: 'We are proud of the success the firm has achieved in developing a collegial and mentoring atmosphere among partners and associates. It is gratifying that our associates have praised Young Conaway for our emphasis on substantive work while also creating a balance that allows attorneys to pursue family, social and community interests outside the office.'
