Most Admired Company: 2016, 2020, 2021
Arizona Senior Executive: James Goodnow, President and Managing Partner
What he does: Full service business law firm.
Company Profile: Fennemore’s client-centric approach means that in today’s complex and evolving business and legal landscape, the firm aggressively protects the legal interests of the businesses it serves, while identifying endless opportunities. As a law firm with over 135 years of history in Arizona and Mountain West, and now California, you can assume – and probably be right – that Fennemore has seen almost everything, survived and thrived, everything by being proudly at the service of its business customers.
Admirable trait: Fennemore actively recruits a diverse mix of talented lawyers and allied legal professionals through a variety of initiatives, including scholarships, internships, training, community involvement, and mentorship opportunities. In 2019, the Fennemore Fellowship and Fellowship for Diversity was the first such partnership between ASU and a law firm. As part of the partnership, the company offers a scholarship and a paid summer scholarship. Over the past year, the Fennemore Management Committee and the Diversity and Inclusion Council have hosted three general meetings on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
