Thank You, 2010 Partners at Work

JULY 27, 2010—The Law School’s 2010 Partners at Work challenge ended June 30, 2010, with impressive results. Just under 900 alumni at 31 organizations participated in the challenge this year.

Overall, 58% of alumni in the Partners at Work organizations made a gift to the Law School, tying last year’s participation rate. This level of investment is particularly exciting considering the economic climate of the 2010 challenge.

Two firms achieved 100% participation: Flynn Gaskins & Bennett LLP and Zimmerman Reed PLLP. This was the second consecutive year Zimmerman Reed finished with 100% participation. Fredrikson & Byron set a new record among Group 2 organizations with a participation rate of 84%.

Organizations in the Partners at Work challenge are divided into two groups by the number of Law School alumni employed. Group 1 companies employ between 5 and 24 alumni, and Group 2 companies employ 25 or more alumni.

Special recognition is merited by the top five organizations in each group (by participation):

Group 1

  • Flynn Gaskins & Bennett LLP: 100%
  • Zimmerman Reed PLLP: 100%
  • Bassford Remele PA: 90%
  • Michael Best & Friedrich LLP: 80%
  • Sidley Austin LLP: 75%

Group 2

  • Leonard Street and Deinard PA: 80%
  • Faegre & Benson LLP: 78%
