The partners of McGlinchey Stafford set out to establish a different type of law firm – one that was focused on smart business solutions, new traditions of client service and innovative legal approaches.
But the firm, which specializes in corporate defense litigation, also strived to provide a comfortable work environment for its employees, with open lines of communication and support from management. McGlinchey Stafford offers vast resources to its employees to aid in job performance and continuing education so that clients receive the best, most cost-efficient services.
“We try to provide a comfortable work environment for our employees,” said regional administrator Nancy McMurray. “(Team members) are given challenging work assignments to meet the needs of the company and also assist in achieving personal goals.”
McGlinchey Stafford is a national firm with offices in eight cities in five states. The Jackson office provides clients with legal counsel in the areas of banking, consumer financial services, business and corporate law, government relations and other specialties. Founded with the motto “Where business and law intersect,” the firm focuses on smart business solutions and breakthrough legal approaches while adding new traditions of client service.
The award-winning legal team at McGlinchey Stafford is consistently recognized as leading lawyers in their field by top legal directories such as Chambers USA and Best Lawyers in America. Its spirit of diversity continues to keep it ahead of the latest emerging legal trends as it strives to provide ‘counsel at the pace of modern business with the drive of entrepreneurs.’
The firm also has been active in organization’s such as the ABA’s Council on Racial and Ethnic Justice and Women in Profession, the Task Force on Diversity in the Profession, the Association of Women Attorneys and various minority job fairs and diversity clerkship programs.
McMurray says the firm looks for job applicants who already have “team player” mentalities, positive attitudes and a dedicated work ethic.
“We offer vast resources to aid our employees in job performance and continuing professional education,” she added.
In 2005, with Hurricane Katrina approaching the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts, McGlinchey Stafford implemented an emergency plan it had drafted after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The firm secured additional office space and 41 apartments in Baton Rouge for displaced attorneys and staff. It also provided two weeks of weather pay to employees after the storm and prior to the commencement of return to work.
