SEATTLE, Wash. (March 9, 2017) - Perkins Coie is proud to announce that it has been named among the 2017 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies To Work For® for the 15th consecutive year. This year the firm ranks 53 in this annual list, now in its 20th year.

“Perkins Coie is tremendously proud to be among the notable companies FORTUNE recognizes as one of the best places to work in America,” said John Devaney, Firmwide Managing Partner. “Receiving this honor 15 years in a row underscores the commitment everyone in the firm has to our core values and culture. We are consistent in respecting our clients and offering a welcome environment for attorneys and staff. We are grateful for this wonderful recognition.”

Perkins Coie has been recognized for excellence and innovation in the legal industry and is frequently honored for its commitment to fostering a culture where all employees have the opportunity to grow and thrive. In addition to its recognition by FORTUNE, the firm has been listed in Working Mother Media/Flex-Time Lawyers LLC’s “Best Law Firms for Women” seven times. The firm has also earned the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s top rating of 100 percent in the Corporate Equality Index (a national benchmarking survey on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality) eight years in a row. In 2016, FORTUNE named Perkins Coie among the “100 Best Workplaces for Women,” the “50 Best Workplaces for Parents” and the “30 Best Workplaces for Consulting & Professional Services.”

To identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For®, each year FORTUNE partners with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. The ranking is based on feedback from more than 276,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified™ companies with more than 1,000 employees. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for employees – measured and ranked through our analysis of the results of our Trust Index© survey and Culture Audit© questionnaire. Through the Trust Index©, employees anonymously assess their workplace, including the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues. Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Companies' results on the Trust Index© survey are compared to peer organizations of like size and complexity. The Culture Audit© includes detailed questions about benefits, programs and practices.

The full list and any related stories appear in the issue of FORTUNE magazine on newsstands on March 13, 2017 and at http://fortune.com/best-companies/ and https://www.greatplacetowork.com/best-workplaces/100-best/2017.
