WTO selected as the Denver Business Journal's #1 Best Place to Work in Denver

Date: 11.15.12

For the third time in the last five years, WTO was named the number one Best Place to Work in Denver in the firm's respective size category in an annual employee survey conducted by the Denver Business Journal.

The firm made it to the top spot based on the high marks employees gave for the caring and respect that pervade the firm, for the generous benefits and the fun perks the firm provides, and for the opportunities the firm's charitable foundation offers to build camaraderie and help those in need. Employees also attributed management's willingness to listen and continuously improve the work environment as factors in their high ranking scores, two behaviors that were especially evident during the firm's relocation to a new attractive and efficient office space in 2012.  Before WTO made the move, management arranged for the interior designers to gather input on design and functionality from the employees.

In accepting the Best Places to Work award on WTO's behalf, managing partner Carolyn Fairless thanked the employees for making WTO such a special place by caring so deeply about each other and about the firm's clients.

Firm chairman Michael O'Donnell cites trying to do the right thing and the smart thing as his personal mantra for leading the firm.  O'Donnell says, "It's pretty straight forward that if you treat people well, they'll treat co-employees and clients well.  It's a nice perfect circle of respect and compassion."

Trial Tested™ Denver-based civil litigation firm Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell helps its clients resolve disputes that threaten their businesses, brands, products, people, and customers. WTO handles trials, appeals, arbitrations, and related areas of complex civil litigation, including class actions and multidistrict litigation, often as national or regional trial counsel, for many of the nation's best-known companies in a wide variety of industries.
