Tonkon Torp Earns Top Placements in 2024 Vault Rankings for Midsize Law Firms

Tonkon Torp is proud to receive impressive recognition in the 2024 Vault Midsize Law Firm rankings. Vault’s annual national rankings are based on information submitted by verified associates in the legal industry and are a well-respected national recruiting reference for the legal community.

Tonkon Torp ranked number 10 as the Overall Best Midsize Law Firm to Work for in the nation, scoring the highest ranking for an Oregon midsize law firm.

It was also selected as one of just three Oregon-based firms in the 2024 Top 150 Under 150, a Vault-curated list of leading small and midsize law firms with 150 lawyers or fewer.

In the Best Midsize Law Firm categories, Tonkon Torp was ranked #1 for Pro Bono and #9 for Transparency. It also ranked in the top 25 for 10 additional categories: Wellness, Compensation, Career Outlook, Hours, Satisfaction, Firm Culture, Formal Training, Quality of Work, Technology & Innovation, and Informal Training, Mentorship, & Sponsorship.

The firm’s Pro Bono ranking is a point of pride as Tonkon Torp has long placed significant value on community involvement and pro bono representation for those with limited access to legal support. Business attorney James Hein, Chair of Tonkon Torp’s Pro Bono Committee, commented “Tonkon’s commitment to our local community, in pro bono and philanthropy, has long been a cornerstone of the firm. It’s gratifying to see how our favorite causes change and evolve over time, but not the underlying spirit of giving back.”

“Vault rankings come directly from our own associate attorneys, so it’s really gratifying to earn such high marks” said Kurt Ruttum, Managing Partner. “Many of our associates join Tonkon Torp directly from law school and frequently choose to stay with us for most of their career. We place a lot of emphasis on supporting skill development and practice growth – these rankings help us fine-tune our efforts in getting rising attorneys the resources, mentorship, and learning opportunities they need to thrive.”
