Vault 100 Survey Ranks Winstead Among 20 Best Law Firms to Work For in Real Estate Law


DALLAS, July 11, 2017, — Winstead PC has been ranked among the nation’s 20 Best Law Firms to Work For in the area of Real Estate Law according to the recently released Vault Top 100 Law Firms For 2018. Winstead also remains in the Top 20 Firms to Work For in Texas, for the seventh consecutive year.

This is the first year Winstead has earned overall recognition in a specific category of law, but the firm has consistently maintained its inclusion in the Top 20 Firms to Work For in Texas since 2010. Winstead is ranked in the following categories:

Overall – Best Law Firms for Real Estate Law (#20) Firms voted strongest in each practice area by associates working in that area at peer firms.

Texas – Best Law Firms in Texas (#24) Reputations rated by associates of peer firms in their own region. These rankings reveal the most prestigious law firms by region across the U.S.

Vault is highly regarded for its rankings, ratings, and reviews on thousands of top employers and hundreds of internship programs across numerous industries.

“Winstead has always been among the elite real estate firms, said Winstead Chief Recruiting Officer Teresa Schneider.  “But we are particularly proud of this recognition because it shows that we practice at a high level while fostering a work environment where young lawyers can hone their skills, thrive and grow with a firm that prioritizes both its clients and its lawyers.

“Winstead’s associate compensation and development structure values more than just billable hours—it takes into account a person’s intangible contributions to the firm, the legal community, and the local community more broadly.” said Winstead Real Estate Associate Holly Magliolo. “The result is a consistent and clear message that the firm sees inherent value in producing associates with a broader understanding of our firm’s role (and our individual roles) in the success of our clients, our firm and our community.”

Various methodologies are employed to obtain these rankings. All are based on associate surveys evaluating various aspects of work life, overall satisfaction; firm culture; hours; substantive work; compensation; business outlook; career outlook; associate/partner relations; leadership transparency; informal and formal training; pro bono; and overall diversity.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
