The Boston Globe Names WilmerHale a Top Place to Work for the Second Consecutive Year

November 21, 2016

The Boston Globe has recognized WilmerHale as a Top Place to Work in Massachusetts for the second consecutive year. The firm ranked 23rd out of a total of 35 similarly-sized Boston employers, and is the only law firm that placed to the large employer list.

The Top Place to Work rankings are based solely on the anonymous opinions of local employees who provide feedback to a third party survey host regarding company direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. More than 2,000 companies were invited to participate in the survey; 332 participated this year. 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)—the category in which WilmerHale lands.

“One asset lands a company on our annual list: happy employees,” wrote The Boston Globe.

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.
