LOS ANGELES – After a rigorous judging process, the Los Angeles Business Journal selected Pillsbury as one of 2019’s Best Law Firms. The honor is a testament to the firm’s leadership and culture, according to the Business Journal.

The publication noted that Pillsbury strives to maintain and improve a positive work environment for all of its employees. Among other initiatives, the firm formed employee resource groups or ERGs in 2018 to increase collaboration between team members and providing a welcoming environment that promotes everyone. Pillsbury Pride, for example, supports members of the LGBTQ+ community, while MERG is a resource group for active and retired military personnel and their families.

Another initiative to create a supportive, cohesive and collaborative environment includes the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which spearheads the efforts and works alongside Human Resources, the Wellbeing, Sustainability and Attorney Development Committees, and local office management.

The Business Journal added that Pillsbury “recognizes that mental health is just as important as physical health.”
