Sunday, February 19, 2017

Inc. magazine has ranked The Gober Group #2455 (#2 law firm in the country) on its 35th annual Inc. 5000 list, the prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States based on revenue growth. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. In addition to The Gober Group, this year’s list included the AmLaw 100 law firms Morgan Lewis (#4701), Polsinelli (#4739), Cooley (#4772), and Ropes & Gray (#4796).

“Over the past six years, our firm has quickly evolved from a one-person political law practice to a diverse pool of elite attorneys with expert knowledge in the areas of campaign finance, government ethics, the law of tax-exempt organizations, and advocacy strategies,” said Managing Partner Chris Gober. “Not only is this Inc. 5000 honor a tribute to our hard-working team and clients who entrust us with their reputations, but it further validates the fact that The Group Group’s expertise and responsiveness are unmatched in the political law field. I’m excited about what we have accomplished, but more excited about our future.”

The average company on the Inc. 5000 list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great—usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
