The 25th anniversary of a law firm is a significant milestone. For our firm, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019, it is a time to celebrate achievement, the value of stable and long-term client relationships, and the fulfilling work that we do with our talented colleagues. In addition to recognizing our strong past, our 25th anniversary is also about the future.
Franczek is unique in representing a mix of employers—from school districts, higher education entities, and other educational institutions to multinational companies, local businesses, nonprofits, and state and local governments. We represent these clients in all aspects of labor and employment, education, and immigration law. Our distinctive mix of business, education, government, and nonprofit clients gives us unique insights into the broader context affecting client issues.
As we celebrate the past and look to the future, we are honored that Chambers and Partners, which is widely recognized as one of the most comprehensive and reliable reviewers of law firms in the United States, once again ranked Franczek P.C. among the leading Labor & Employment law firms in Illinois in its 2019 USA Guide. The firm continues to be the highest-ranked Labor & Employment boutique law firm in Illinois. Jim Franczek was recognized for the 23rd consecutive year in Band 1 of the rankings for individual attorneys. Only six other lawyers received that prestigious honor this year.
Because these rankings are based primarily on feedback from clients and friends of the firm, they are particularly meaningful to us as a reflection of our values and efforts as a firm over the past 25 years. We are grateful for your business, your interest in our work, and your friendship, and look forward to the next 25 years.
