The Boston Globe has recognized WilmerHale among its 2015 Top Places to Work in Boston, a list based solely on the anonymous opinions of employees during a survey focused on company direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits and engagement. WilmerHale ranked within the top 25 and is one of only two law firms to rank.
As stated by The Boston Globe, "All winning companies share a few traits: treating workers well, giving them a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they're at it."
Throughout its more than 85 year history—from a five-lawyer office to a diverse practice of more than 300 lawyers, WilmerHale's Boston office is a hub for litigation, corporate and intellectual property practices. Clients in Boston benefit from lawyers' experience in other core practices such as bankruptcy and commercial, environmental, labor and employment, real estate and tax. In addition to actively contributing to the firm's strong tradition of pro bono representation, WilmerHale's 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.
All honorees gathered for an awards event on November 12 at the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center in Boston.
