Lowenstein Sandler has been named one of Crain’s 2018 Best Places to Work in New York City in the large-companies category. Crain’s annual ranking of 100 companies recognizes employers that have demonstrated a “commitment to creating a supportive, collegial, and empowering workplace” and that make an extra effort to inspire and support their employees.
One of only 7 law firms to make the list, Lowenstein was noted for offering paid time off for community service, telecommuting options, fitness/wellness initiatives, and on- and off-site training and development opportunities. The final rankings were announced at a November 30, 2018, celebratory luncheon at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan.
“Lowenstein is tremendously honored to receive this recognition,” said Gary M. Wingens, Lowenstein’s Chairman and Managing Partner. “With well over 100 lawyers in our New York office and over 250 lawyers in the New York area, New York has been our fastest-growing market for at least the past decade. We are gratified that our people recognize that our firm’s culture and work environment are rewarding, enjoyable, and inclusive. This accolade reflects our ongoing commitment to our colleagues, our clients, and our community.”
“To stand out in New York City as an employer of choice proves that we’re doing right by our people,” said Lowenstein Chief Human Resources Officer Donatella Verrico. “We invest in our employees in numerous ways—including through employee wellness programs, competitive compensation, exciting and challenging work, purposeful mentorship and sponsorship, and diversified and distinct benefits. The result is an energetic, collegial environment resulting in employee retention and top-caliber client service. Lowenstein is a community that people are proud to be a part of, and this latest accolade clearly reflects that.”
To compile its Best Places to Work list, Crain’s collaborated with Best Companies Group to survey over 23,000 employees, who answered questions on various job-related topics, including benefits, corporate culture, and overall working conditions. Responses were evaluated in tandem with results from an employer survey. The resulting roster of winners represents a broad array of industries, including law, technology, engineering, finance, and accounting.
