No. 1 Small Company: Barran Liebman LLP
This Portland law firm keeps its employees happy by creating a community- oriented environment—in and outside of the office. “As a law firm, we have the ability to impact out community and we take that responsibility seriously,” says one employee. ”We integrate our community involvement with our sense of team and make participation easy and fun for everyone.” The firm’s long list of volunteer activities include fundraising for Camp Ukandu, serving kids with cancer, adopting holiday families in need and supporting the St. Andrew Legal Clinic through the Race for Justice and Wine Auction. Employees are also fond of the company’s many perks: gift cards, staff appreciation week, and random bonuses during obscure holidays; like Leap Day and the Fourth of July. Opportunities to socialize with coworkers are another plus: at this firm, summer parties, baby showers, and pizza and poker nights are the norm. Indeed, what many employees like best about working here is the upbeat, family-friendly atmosphere. Says one staff member: ”We just like to hang out with each other and have fun.”
