The Boston Globe has recognized WilmerHale as a Top Place to Work in Massachusetts for the third consecutive year. The firm was ranked ninth out of a total of 35 similarly-sized Boston employers, and is the only law firm that placed to the large employer list. This placement puts the firm 14 spots ahead of last year's ranking and into the top 10 best places to work within the large category. The Top Places to Work rankings are based solely on the anonymous opinions of local employees who provide feedback to a third party survey host.
The survey consisted of 75,000 employees from 334 companies who answered questions based on management, training, direction and job satisfaction. Winners have been declared in four categories: small companies (50 to 99 workers), medium (100 to 249), large (250 to 999) and largest (1,000 or more).
With nearly 600 employees (both attorneys and staff), WilmerHale's Boston office is a hub for the firm's Litigation, Corporate and Intellectual Property Practices. The firm's Corporate and Securities Litigation Practice is a New England leader in defending technology companies and their leadership teams in complex shareholder and consumer class actions. Clients benefit from attorneys' experience in other core practices such as bankruptcy and commercial, environmental, labor and employment, real estate and tax. Many of the firm's core members of the renowned Intellectual Property Litigation Practice are based in Boston, and have served as lead counsel in hundreds of major patent and trademark litigations. In addition to actively contributing to the firm's tradition of pro bono representation, the Boston office is a major center for the firm's Youth and Education Initiative, a program of philanthropic outreach based on the creation of innovative partnerships with select nonprofit organizations dedicated to serving inner-city youth.
