Bryan Cave's Los Angeles office (based in Santa Monica) has been named one of the "Best Places to Work" for 2008 by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The firm was among 70 companies selected for the award, and one of only six law firms honored. Bryan Cave was honored for the second year in a row, this year ranking fourth in the medium-sized companies group (25-249 employees).

The recognition is based on an evaluation of workplace policies, demographics, practices, philosophy and systems as well as an in-depth survey measuring the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and final ranking. The process was managed by Best Companies Group, a professional firm located in Harrisburg, Pa.
