Limitless Resources

Every day we collaborate across our six offices, and when needed we have immediate, unfettered access to the resources of our global Worldcom partners in every region around the world.


Padilla employees in offices from the West Coast to the Eastern seaboard dedicate personal volunteer time and professional pro bono hours to help others in their communities. See our 2022 Report to the Community for more details.

Social responsibility is one of many reasons Padilla became part of AVENIR GLOBAL in 2018. To learn more about its commitment to communities, download the 2021 AVENIR GLOBAL Corporate Responsibility Report: Rediscovering our space.
