Vault’s Law 100 Rankings for 2018 are are topped by a returning champion.

Cravath, Swaine & Moore is once again the most prestigious firm. It widened its lead over Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, which had previously enjoyed a 13-year reign at the top, reports Vault’s Matt Moody.

“Survey respondents called Cravath the ‘leader of the pack’ and the ‘great American law firm against which all others should be judged.’ Cravath increased its score from 8.961 to 9.056, while Wachtell, described as the ‘M&A legends,’ saw its prestige score drop slightly from 8.904 to 8.788,” according to Moody.

Vault based its ranking on scores from nearly 18,000 law firm associates surveyed earlier this year, who were asked to rate law firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige.
