Inc. Magazine revealed on Aug. 15 that the Fort Worth law firm of Varghese Summersett PLLC is No. 782 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to have made Inc. Magazine’s list of America’s fastest-growing companies,” said Benson Varghese, founder and managing partner of Varghese Summersett. “In four years, we’ve gone from hanging a shingle to becoming the largest criminal defense firm in North Texas. At the core of our success is a fantastic group of people. Fort Worth is home to a lot of great talent, and the community has embraced our efforts to provide unparalleled legal service. We’ve also recently added a family law practice, which we are very excited about.”
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
