On September 19, 2022, the Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) announced the 2022 “Most Admired Law Firms to Work For” List. For the third consecutive year, Willenken is featured in this special LABJ supplement that distinguishes the most admired 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 are consciously working towards creating diverse, positive, and supportive environments to help drive the success of their attorneys.
Those 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 Los Angeles community, as well as programs and initiatives that benefit staff.
To create the list, LABJ considered a combination of the following elements, with many firms scoring high in all the categories listed below:
- Company culture
- Employee compensation
- Diversity and women’s initiatives
- Work-life balance
LABJ provides a brief report on the firm’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 physical and mental 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.
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. Willenken 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
