The Atlanta office of Seyfarth Shaw was founded in September 1996 and has grown from its original two attorneys to over 75 attorneys who practice in the areas of labor & employment law, commercial real estate law, corporate law, employee benefits and ERISA litigation, and commercial litigation. Our attorneys are thought leaders who are actively involved in, and are frequent speakers, authors and panelists for a variety of professional and industry organizations throughout the metro Atlanta business community including the Metro Atlanta Chamber, the Urban Land Institute, The Society for Human Resource Management and the Associated General Contractors organization.
The Atlanta office is regularly a leader in associate and employee satisfactions surveys throughout the firm. In 2011, the Atlanta office was ranked by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one of Atlanta’s “Best Places to Work.” This highly coveted designation was based on anonymous employee based surveys, gauging issues including level of trust in co-workers, believing co-workers consistently go the extra mile to achieve great results and feeling that career development efforts are aligned with the firm’s overall goals. The office has also been recognized in the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one of the fastest growing Atlanta law firms based on attorney head count over the last five years, and the second fastest growing Atlanta law firm based on revenue over the last five years.
In addition to our pro bono legal work, the Atlanta office places emphasis on involvement within the local community and encourages participation across a variety of philanthropic initiatives. Our attorneys and staff sit on numerous boards and committees that promote a healthy community, including children’s causes such as the Everybody Wins! reading program; environmental groups such as The Nature Conservancy; and health-related organizations, such as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and our flagship philanthropy, The American Heart Association, which we support through active fundraising and participation in the organizations’ annual Heart Walk through downtown Atlanta each fall.
