In addition to the survey-based rankings, the Top 150 Under 150 list is also out. This is not based specifically on the survey results, but is rather a list curated by the Vault Law editorial team based on all of the survey info with the only restriction, of course, being that qualifying firms must be smaller than 150 attorneys. It is also not a ranked list, but is simply presented in alphabetical order.
