Jackson Lewis Named a Best Law Firm to Work For by U.S. News and World Report

NEW YORK, NY (February 8, 2024) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce the firm has been selected for inclusion on the 2024 U.S. News Best Companies to Work For: Law Firms list. The list evaluates the country’s top law firms based on their workplace environments and other factors relevant to employees and job seekers.

 

“We are thrilled to be selected for inclusion on U.S. News’ Best Companies to Work For: Law Firms list,” said Firm Chair Kevin Lauri. “Our high score in the ‘Belongingness’ category is a testament to our culture of maintaining a welcoming and inclusive community where individual differences are embraced, supported, respected and valued. We will continue to provide opportunities for growth and development firmwide.”

 

The 2024 Best Companies to Work For: Law Firms builds on U.S. News’ Best Companies to Work For list by analyzing how individual firms meet the needs and expectations of their employees compared to their competitors. The list follows a similar assessment of the Best Companies to Work For by considering the quality of pay and benefits, work-life balance, job stability, physical and psychological comfort, belongingness and opportunities for professional development.

 

Similar to the Best Companies to Work For methodology, the methodology for the Law Firms list analyzes publicly available employee sentiment and other data that demonstrates how a company supports the everyday experience of its workers.

 

Jackson Lewis strives to be a leading advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and employee wellness in the legal profession. For the past several years, the firm’s DEI team, led by Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer and Principal Kimya S.P. Johnson, has been executing a strategic plan to strengthen the firm’s culture of respect, belonging and inclusivity is strengthened. “It is only through consistent and intentional efforts that belonging can be realized for all, and we remain committed to pursuing this goal,” Kimya said.

 

Wellness Director Gavin Alexander leads Jackson Lewis’ strategic efforts to promote firmwide well-being. The firm aims to maintain a workplace and culture where help-seeking is encouraged, employees feel supported and factors that may contribute adversely to well-being can be identified and hopefully, mitigated. “Jackson Lewis is committed to promoting our team members’ wellness holistically and to breaking down fear or stigma related to getting support,” said Gavin. “We want all of our team members to feel that they can get the care and support they need and know that it won’t be held against them."

 

In addition to its placement on the 2024 U.S. News Best Companies to Work For: Law Firms list, Jackson Lewis was also recently recognized on the Corporate Equality Index for its corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality, was honored with the “Tipping the Scales” award for equity in its representation of women in its 2023 new partner class and achieved Mansfield 6.0 Plus Certification for facilitating transparent pathways to firm leadership.
