Plunkett Cooney ranks among Michigan’s ‘Cool Places to Work!’


Plunkett Cooney, one of the oldest and largest law firms in the Midwest, was recently named by Crain’s Detroit Business as one of its 2019 Cool Places to Work in Michigan.

This is the firm’s first appearance on the annual Crain’s list, which recognizes the state’s top 100 coolest workplaces based on such factors as employee satisfaction, employee benefits, company policies and more. Plunkett Cooney’s President & CEO Thomas P. Vincent said landing on the list is, well… pretty cool.

“We’re really excited to be selected by Crain’s as a Cool Place to Work,” Vincent said. “We work hard for our clients, but it’s important to take time out to have some fun too. Our management team is focused on making the firm the kind of place where people want to spend their careers.”

The Cool Places to Work program includes a two-part evaluation process consisting of company and employee surveys. The combined scores determine the top companies and final rankings. Best Companies Group, a research firm for more than 70 Best Places to Work programs worldwide, manages the Cool Places process for Crain’s, including analysis of the survey data.

Plunkett Cooney maintains a firm wide “Great Place to Work” program to enhance the work experience for all employees. This program goes beyond compensation and the traditional benefits packages offered by most companies. The program includes opportunities for continuing education, special events, employee convenience services, diversity recruitment and retention, mentoring, wellness programs and much more.

Plunkett Cooney has also been recognized by other organizations for its ongoing efforts to create a better workplace, including the Detroit Free Press, which previously named the firm to its list of “Top Places to Work” and the Michigan Business & Professional Association, which named the firm one of its “101 Best & Brightest Places to Work For.”

Established in 1913, Plunkett Cooney is a leading provider of business and litigation services to clients in the private and public sectors. The firm employs approximately 140 attorneys in eight Michigan cities, Chicago, Illinois, Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana. Plunkett Cooney has achieved the highest rating (AV) awarded by Martindale-Hubbell, a leading, international directory of law firms. The firm was also recently selected by Crain’s Detroit Business as its inaugural Law Firm of the Year.
