Some of these comments appear on the U.S. News & Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” website at bestlawfirms.usnews.com. They were gathered during the"Best Law Firms" research process.


MGKF and many of its attorneys have been recognized for their work in environmental law in various publications and rankings, such as:   

MGKF was included in Law360’s 2015 Top 100 Environmental Practice Group Partner Rankings.  With 22 partners, Manko Gold was ranked as the 16th largest environmental law practice by partner count when compared to other environmental practice groups across the country.9 

Additionally MGKF has been honored for its family-friendly work environment in Top Workplaces surveys by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com since 2011 and the Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children (DVAEYC).

MGKF is proud to be named a Law360 "Ceiling Smasher" and was the only firm headquartered in the Philadelphia area to be included on the list.  MGKF was ranked 18th nationally for its percentage of women in the partnership.  While the many law firms’ partnership ranks are still dominated by men, MGKF’s female partners account for more than 36 percent of the partnership, compared to the national average of 22 percent according to Law360’s 2016 Glass Ceiling Report.
