Why It's a Great Employer

Founded in 1983 by a group of lawyers fed up with "typical" law firm culture, Freeborn & Peters sponsors fun events such as a "pod crawl," a party with different themes on six floors of their Chicago office. Themes have included a New Year's Eve party, pajama party and fraternity party. Employees who have the best theme win a follow-up pizza soiree. Another perk: nonlawyer staff members are eligible for profit-sharing. A Women's Leadership Council publishes a quarterly newsletter about female attorneys and organizes networking events such as a "Spa Day" with clients and community leaders.
