CHICAGO, Ill. (May 22, 2018) - Perkins Coie is proud to announce that it has been named as one of the Chicago area’s top employers by research and consulting firm Great Place to Work Institute and FORTUNE for the second year in a row. The ranking considered over 11,000 employee surveys at Great Place to Work-certified organizations in the Chicago area. The surveys considered such elements as employees’ pride in their organizations’ community impact, their belief that their work makes a difference, and their sense that their work has special meaning. The firm was ranked fifth among 25 Best Workplaces in Chicago 2018.

“We are grateful to be recognized for two consecutive years by the Great Place to Work Institute and FORTUNE,” said Chris Wilson, Office Managing Partner of Perkins Coie’s Chicago office. “We believe strongly that we serve our clients best when every employee of our firm is given the opportunity to grow and thrive.
