Gowling WLG named one of the UK's top 10 best workplaces and ranked by Great Place to Work® for 19th consecutive year

International law firm Gowling WLG has been recognised as one of the top ten best places to work in the UK and has been ranked by Great Place to Work® for the 19th consecutive year.

Great Place to Work® have published the UK's Best Workplaces™ rankings, with the firm being named ninth in the inaugural Super-large category, for organisations with more than 1,000 employees.

This latest ranking marks another significant accolade for the firm, which remains one of only two companies holding "master status", having been listed every year since the survey began in 2001. It builds on the firm securing an Excellence in Wellbeing award from Great Place to Work® earlier this year - a new UK-wide recognition for organisations with leading wellbeing practices.

Chief Executive David Fennell said: "We're incredibly proud to have maintained our status as one of the UK's best workplaces and to have featured so highly in the newly-formed Super Large category in 2019. This recognition is testament to the positive, collaborative working environment our people foster and their enthusiasm and effort to improve our service offering.

"Great Place to Work® provides us with invaluable feedback from our people on where we're doing well and where we can improve, as well as independent benchmarking - leading to new initiatives each year that deliver for our people and our clients. We're a business built around our people, and I'm delighted to acknowledge all of their hard work over the past year."

Gowling WLG is an international law firm with more than 1,400 legal professionals across 18 cities providing clients with legal services across the world.
