National law firm Lowenstein Sandler has been ranked in eighth place among NJBIZ’s 2018 Best Places to Work in New Jersey in the large-company category. This is the seventh consecutive year that Lowenstein has made the list.

The annual Best Places survey and awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. An awards ceremony and reception were held on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 5-8 p.m., at iPlay America’s Event Center in Freehold, New Jersey.

“It is an honor to be listed year after year among the Best Places to Work in New Jersey,” said Gary M.

We believe this accolade reflects that effort. More broadly, it is a tribute to our sustained commitment to our colleagues, our clients, and our community.”

“This recognition proves that doing right by our people pays off,” said Lowenstein Chief Human Resources Officer Donatella Verrico. “We invest in our employees in a variety of ways, including employee wellness programs, competitive compensation, exciting and challenging work, and diversified and distinct benefits. The result is a positive and collegial environment where employee retention, client service, and productivity are clearly evident. Simply put, Lowenstein is a community that people are proud to be a part of, and we are grateful for their dedication and contributions each and every day.”
