Marc Kasowitz


The law firm founded by President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, has broken into the top 100 in Vault’s prestige rankings.

Kasowitz Benson Torres got a “Trump bump” with its No. 99 ranking, the New York Times DealBook blog reports.

The rankings are based on a survey of 18,000 associates asked to rate the prestige of law firms other than their own. The survey was taken in the spring.

Kasowitz was already in the news at that time for representing Trump in defamation suits and business matters, but he had not yet been named to lead Trump’s legal team in the Russian influence probe.

Cravath, Swaine & Moore took the top spot in the rankings, according to DealBook and Above the Law.

The top 10 law firms in the Vault rankings are:

1) Cravath, Swaine & Moore

2) Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

3) Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom

4) Sullivan & Cromwell

5) Davis Polk & Wardwell

6) Simpson Thacher & Bartlett

7) Latham & Watkins

8) Kirkland & Ellis

9) Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher

10) Weil, Gotshal & Manges
