PHILADELPHIA, April 4, 2017—Duane Morris LLP has been named a 2017 “Top Workplace” in the region by Philly.com, the website affiliated with The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News. The Top Workplaces list is based on an employee survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC. Duane Morris ranked third in the Large Companies category and also received an award for training. The firm was honored at Philly.com’s eighth annual awards dinner and ceremony in Philadelphia on March 23, 2017.
“We are very pleased to receive this award for the second consecutive year and gratified to know that our attorneys and staff recognize the unique collegial and collaborative culture we strive to provide at Duane Morris,” said John J. Soroko, Chairman and CEO of the firm.
