BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – Steptoe & Johnson’s associate hiring grew at a faster rate than other firms ranked among the National Law Journal top 350 firms.  The firm’s growth rate was more than 72% between 2011 and 2012 which was greater than twice that of other NLJ 350 firms. 

From 2011 through 2012, Steptoe & Johnson added 34 associate level attorneys primarily in the area of energy and natural resources law.  The new hires helped usher in a period of growth for the firm as new offices opened in Texas and Colorado.
