Share

Baker Donelson has been ranked as among the "Best of the Best" in BTI Consulting Group's inaugural survey of law firm associates about key drivers of retention and job satisfaction.

Baker Donelson is one of only six firms in the BTI Associate Satisfaction A-Listers 2022: BTI Survey of Law Firms Where Associates are Happiest to be recognized at the top two levels – "Best of the Best" or "Leaders" – in all eight factors for associates and women associates. Baker Donelson also is among the firms in the report with the highest number of "Best of the Best" rankings. The Firm was named in the top 5 percent of firms in all eight factors for both associates and women associates, and was in the top 1-2 percent in six factors for both associates and women associates.

"We're extremely proud that our associates have recognized Baker Donelson as a firm that values their contributions," said Baker Donelson Chair and CEO Timothy M. Lupinacci. "Ensuring a fulfilling work environment is a priority for us, and our associates have been integral in achieving that. Through their involvement in our Associate Advisory Board and Associate Compensation Committee, our associates have provided insight that has been invaluable in improving our ability to support them. I am so grateful for them and for our shareholders and of counsel who make such an impact as mentors and are committed to ensuring our associates realize their full potential."

The BTI Associate Satisfaction A-Listers report is based on more than 4,000 responses from associates that analyze key aspects of the associate experience and their satisfaction. BTI conducted the survey of associates at Am Law 200, global, mid-size, and smaller law firms. The report highlights law firms leading the way in eight factors that drive associate job satisfaction, and also measures those same factors as they relate to the satisfaction of women associates.

In areas the report identified as most valued by associates, Baker Donelson was ranked among the "Best of the Best" for helping associates with their careers, helping develop a career path, offering access to training, mentoring, having partners who are invested in individual associates' success, and having the best pay.

Baker Donelson also earned "Best of the Best" designations in areas that highlight the Firm's support for women associates in achieving success, including developing their careers, growing within the firm, mentorship, and earnings.
