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


For the second consecutive year, Plunkett Cooney, one of the oldest and largest law firms in the Midwest, has been named by Crain’s Detroit Business as one of its Cool Places to Work in Michigan!

The annual Crain’s list recognizes the state’s top 100 coolest workplaces based on such factors as employee satisfaction, employee benefits, company policies and more.

For the first time, the Cool Places to Work list of honorees was unveiled earlier today at a virtual event sponsored by Crain’s. The business publication also printed a special issue that ranks the 100 companies that made the 2020 list. The feature will be available online on Aug. 17.

“We’re really excited to be selected by Crain’s as a Cool Place to Work, and this year’s honor is particularly special,” said Plunkett Cooney President & CEO Thomas Vincent. “Everyone was thrown a curveball by the pandemic, so as a firm, we had to strike the right balance between providing uninterrupted service to our clients while protecting the welfare of our employees. This award lets us know we’re doing the right things, and that our employees appreciate being part of what I consider to be one of the best law firms in the country!”

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 previously 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 150 attorneys in seven 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 selected by Crain’s Detroit Business as its inaugural Law Firm of the Year.
