NEW ORLEANS – For the seventh consecutive year, Baker Donelson has been named one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For®.

         The law firm is ranked 32nd on the prestigious list, which recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.

         Baker Donelson Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ben C. Adams said, "We have been on this list for seven years now, and every single year I am overwhelmed with gratitude toward our people, who have built a world class culture and who extend that world class culture in their service of our clients."

         In naming Baker Donelson to the list, Fortune noted the Firm "balances hard work with a laid-back culture" and highlighted the Firm's work providing legal advice to the homeless as well as its parental leave policy, which offers 16 weeks of paid leave for both male and female attorneys to take as primary caregivers and which also allows intermittent leave for both primary and non-primary caregiver attorneys.

         Baker Donelson was selected among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the list this year. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices.

         Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

         The full list and related stories are online now and will be featured in the Fortune magazine on newsstands March 7.
