For the third consecutive year, the Mississippi Business Journal has named Adams and Reese among its Top 10 “Best Places to Work” for 2008 in Jackson.
The Jackson office was honored January 16th at an awards breakfast as part of the Mississippi Business and Technology Expo. Adams and Reese will be profiled in a special “Best Places to Work” publication in the Mississippi Business Journal.
Factors that influenced the firm's ranking were such benefits as competitive salaries, maternity and day-care options, health, prescription and dental benefits, 401(k) and profit sharing plans, life and disability plans, employee recognition programs and a commitment to personal health by holding an annual Health Fair and providing discounts for health club memberships.
Additionally, the opportunity for all employees to participate in HUGS, the firm’s award-winning corporate philanthropy program, weighed in heavily to make Adams and Reese one the top employer-friendly companies in the city. For attorneys, the opportunity to participate in CA&RE, the firm’s official pr bono program, is considered a unique and important part of belonging to the firm.
Aside from the Jackson office, the Birmingham, New Orleans and Nashville offices have also been recognized among the “Best Places to Work” by publications in their respective communities.
Adams and Reese has offices in Baton Rouge, LA; Birmingham, AL; Houston, TX; Jackson, MS; Memphis, TN; Mobile, AL; Nashville, TN; New Orleans, LA and Washington, DC. American Lawyer Magazine includes Adams and Reese on its distinguished list of the nation’s top 200 firms - “The AmLaw 200.” The National Law Journal also lists the firm on the “NLJ 250” of the nation’s largest law firms.
