Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP has ranked first in Delaware and 11th in the country when compared to other firms its size, according to the 2007 American Lawyer Midlevel Associates survey.

"The firm is pleased that Young Conaway is continually recognized as a great place to practice law," said firm chairman James L. Patton Jr.

The 2007 survey of third, fourth and fifth year associates at 189 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.

The survey results and methodology are highlighted as the cover story in the August issue of The American Lawyer.
