Four law firms make it to Fortune's list of the top 100 companies to work for

January 22, 2011 Four law firms – Alston & Bird, Bingham McCutchen, Baker Donelson and Perkins Coie - have made Fortune’s list of the 100 top companies to work for.

Here are Fortune’s rankings and descriptions of the firms that made the list:

No. 13 is Alston & Bird, previously ranked 30th. “What makes it so great? For a decade the law firm has had its own child-care campus a block away from its offices. The facility was expanded this year and now provides day care to 110 children, with subsidized rates for parents in lower-salaried ranks.”

No. 28 is Bingham McCutchen, previously ranked 12th. “What makes it so great? Known for its diversity (20 percent of partners are women, 7 percent are minorities), this corporate law firm is dedicated to community service. Each year two lawyers are awarded fellowships that further the firm's pro bono commitments.”

No. 50 is Baker Donelson, previously ranked 77th. “What makes it so great? The 123-year-old law firm has a strong commitment to public service: It dedicates one attorney as its 'pro bono shareholder' to oversee charitable legal service and has doubled its yearly number of pro bono hours since 2008.”

No. 55 is Perkins Coie, previously ranked 75th. “What makes it so great? Law firm's blue-chip client list includes Boeing, Intel, Google, Microsoft and Starbucks. In 2010 it began holding quarterly programs to acquaint all its staff—not just the lawyers—with how the firm's work impacts companies' success.”
