LAWFUEL – Legal Newswire – New York – July 2, 2007 – For the fourth consecutive year, The American Lawyer magazine has named Debevoise & Plimpton LLP to the top position in its “A-List” ranking of the nation’s leading law firms. In its July issue, The American Lawyer notes that Debevoise “continues to combine near-perfect pro bono scores with top-flight revenue per lawyer and diversity numbers…” Debevoise ranked second in New York and fourth nationally for its pro bono work.

This is the publication’s fifth annual A-List survey, which ranks firms
based on revenue per lawyer, associate satisfaction, diversity and pro
bono effort. Debevoise is one of seven firms that have been included in
The American Lawyer’s 20-member A-List in each of those five years. The

believe achieving that goal is fostered by a commitment to diversity,
public service and a working environment that permits and encourages
each member of our law firm community to do his or her best work,” said
Debevoise presiding partner Martin Frederic Evans. “We are honored by
The American Lawyer’s recognition of our work toward those goals.”
