McGuireWoods is recognized among an exclusive group in the Los Angeles Business Journal’s Most Admired Law Firms” issue. The firm, which also was selected for LABJ’s inaugural issue in 2019, is lauded for creating diverse, positive and supportive work environments to attract and retain talented lawyers.

LABJ selected 38 firms as the best to work for in the region based on factors such as company culture; employee compensation, benefits and programs; and diversity and women’s initiatives.

“In addition to the many benefits and programs offered by the firm, the McGuireWoods offices in downtown Los Angeles and Century City bring the firm’s lawyers together by hosting a number of events throughout the year to benefit the community,” LABJ reported. “Overall the programs and benefits the firm offers help create a positive work environment conducive to providing clients with exceptional service and the firm’s lawyers with a high level of satisfaction.”

LABJ quoted a McGuireWoods associate who described the firm as “the best place to work with the best people to learn from. They are all nurturing and caring. They want you to succeed and they invest their time in you so that you can succeed.”

”We are proud that our inclusive culture has been recognized as one of the many reasons McGuireWoods is a rewarding place to work,” said downtown Los Angeles office managing partner Hamid Namazie, who was named one of LABJ’s “Most Influential Minority Attorneys” in 2019. “The firm is committed to building a diverse community of talented lawyers, from our summer associates to the highest levels of firm leadership.”

“Creating opportunities for our lawyers to excel professionally and partner with clients to give back to our communities is of utmost importance to the firm,” added Richard Grant, managing partner of the firm’s Century City office. “We are honored to be recognized again among the best firms to work for in Los Angeles.”
