April 6, 2006 Accolades

SAN FRANCISCO (April 6, 2006):  Farella Braun + Martel LLP was named one of the Bay Area's Best Places to Work for the second consecutive year.  Farella Braun + Martel placed thirteenth on a list of 50 companies with 101- 500 employees.  The rankings were largely the result of an online employee satisfaction survey on a range of topics.

The "Best Places to Work" list comprises a broad cross section of the region's employers. The project was a joint effort of the San Francisco Business Times, the San Jose Business Journal, and the East Bay Business Times.

"At Farella Braun + Martel, we strive for a collegial working environment; one in which all doors are open and everyone feels as if they are a member of the firm," stated Judy Todd, Executive Director.  "We are delighted our efforts have been recognized.  The research company's approach, which required anonymous submissions by our attorneys and staff, demonstrates our commitment is appreciated at all levels of our team."
