The firm's Palo Alto and Washington DC offices have been named "Top Workplaces" by Bay Area News and The Washington Post, based on results generated from employee surveys measuring local and overall leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility and diversity—proving that from coast to coast, lawyers and staff are happy with the firm's culture.
This is the second consecutive year that the Palo Alto office has been named among the Bay Area's "Top Workplaces," by Bay Area News. Since its opening in 2005, the office has grown to nearly 70 attorneys who practice in a wide range of areas, including litigation, corporate, securities, intellectual property, technology licensing and fund formation.
WilmerHale's Washington DC office is comprised of more than 400 attorneys and is one of the largest in the metropolitan area and is the largest office within the firm. The attorneys' broad range of skills—which include regulatory experience, policy advocacy, litigation, and the drafting and negotiation of agreements—provide the backbone to the firm's presence in Washington.
Bay Area News celebrated the firm and all other honorees at an awards event on June 15. The Washington Post hosted a celebratory event on June 19.
