For the second consecutive year, Morrison & Foerster was named the No. 1 clean technology law firm by Vault.com as part of its annual practice area rankings. This year, the San Francisco-based Morrison & Foerster tied with Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati for the top spot.

To determine the rankings, Vault polled nearly 17,000 associates to vote for up to three firms they consider strongest in their own practice area; however, they were not permitted to vote for their own firm. The company says its rankings are used by law students and associates as a resource for career searches.

According to Vault, here are the top 10 cleantech law firms:

1. Morrison & Foerster / Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (tie)
