(Ogletree Deakins), America’s third-largest labor and employment law firm, has advanced seven spots to land at 100 in the latest NLJ 250 list.  As the firm has strengthened in size during the last year, it has also increased its visibility on the NLJ 250 and across the United States.  The firm now has more than 450 attorneys in 35 offices nationwide.   

“We are pleased Ogletree Deakins continues to advance on the NLJ 250 list,” said Gray Geddie, managing shareholder of the firm.  “Although the firm has grown in size during the past year, our goal is not to be the biggest law firm.  We believe that providing first class legal service to our clients is our number one priority.  By adhering to this philosophy, we’ve been able to successfully grow the firm in order to meet the expanded needs of our clients.  As a top 100 law firm on the NLJ 250 list, it’s a positive sign that our quality of service remains a cornerstone of our growth.”
