April 19, 2019 Accolades

SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2019: Farella Braun + Martel LLP is proud to be named one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area for the thirteenth time. Published by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the list honors 130 Bay Area companies that have exceptional workplaces and value the contributions of their employees.

“Farella’s strength has always been its people: great partners, wonderful associates and outstanding staff,” said firm chair Brian Donnelly. “A rewarding workplace and collegial culture are ideals that have been hallmarks of Farella since its founding in 1962. We are thrilled to be a vibrant member of the Bay Area legal community for almost 60 years, and we are honored to be one of the few Bay Area law firms to consistently make this list.”

The rankings were determined in conjunction with Quantum Workplace, which sent surveys directly to employees of 480 companies that were in consideration to evaluate their company on such values as trust in leadership, collaborative culture, personal engagement and satisfaction of individual needs through great benefits and perks.

The outstanding workplaces were honored at an awards event on April 18 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
