CHICAGO (May 24, 2021)—Perkins Coie is pleased to announce that it has been named as one of the Chicago metro area’s top employers for 2021 by research and consulting firm Great Place to Work®. The firm ranked 17th in the large company segment for 2021 and has been named to the list for five consecutive years.

“Perkins Coie has long supported a culture of collaboration, inclusion, and respect, which has carried us through the COVID-19 pandemic, and this recognition is a true testament to all our Chicago attorneys and other professionals,” said Rick Sevcik, Chicago office managing partner. “We are maintaining our focus on first-class client service and legal counsel as we continue to invest in Chicago and across the Midwest.”

To accommodate the firm’s continued growth in the Chicago area, Perkins Coie will be moving to a larger, more collaborative office space at 110 North Wacker Drive in late 2021.

To determine the 2021 Best Workplaces in Chicago, Great Place to Work® analyzed confidential survey feedback from over 30,000 employees in the Chicago metropolitan statistical area. The survey assessed such elements as employees’ experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization—no matter their position—as well as their daily experiences with innovation, values, and the effectiveness of leaders in their organization.

Perkins Coie has consistently been recognized for excellence in the legal industry and for fostering a positive work culture—most notably by being named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, for 19 consecutive years. The firm has also been named to Working Mother’s list of Best Law Firms for Women 12 times and was recognized by Microsoft as the 2020 “Top Performer” in its Law Firm Diversity Program. Additionally, Perkins Coie has earned the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s top rating of 100% in the Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality 13 years in a row.
