On September 18, 2023, the Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) announced the 2023 “Leaders of Influence: Most Admired Law Firms to Work for” List. For the fourth consecutive year, Willenken is featured in this special LABJ supplement that distinguishes the most admired, successful, and best law firms to work for in the Los Angeles area.
LABJ’s “Most Admired Law Firms to Work for” recognition is being awarded to those law firms that consciously work towards creating “diverse, positive, and supportive environments to help drive the success of their attorneys.”
The law firms selected for inclusion were reviewed by LABJ‘s editorial department and chosen based on a demonstration of impact made on the profession and the Los Angeles community, including a review of the firm’s programs and initiatives that benefit staff. Whether you are an attorney or a member of the supporting team, the “most admired” law firms have a specific set of qualities that make them great places to work.
LABJ provides a brief report on Willenken’s workplace philosophy and culture and states that:
“Willenken is an elite minority-owned, majority-women law firm that truly cares about developing and supporting its diverse employees’ careers, professional development, as well as their mental and physical health. The firm breaths a positive, collaborative, and entrepreneurial environment and offers competitive salaries, benefits, and perks, as well as a positive work life balance.
Willenken’s lawyers are given the opportunity to gain unparalleled, hands-on, substantive legal experience in terms of opportunities for trial work, oral argument, and case leadership, as well as fostering client relationships, and actively participating in business development initiatives to gain new skills to further develop their careers. At Willenken, leadership believes in and provides real support to developing lawyers as the means to developing the firm, not the other way around.”Los Angeles Business Journal
