Our Culture

At Lionakis, our company mission is Designing a Better Future and to achieve that, we strive to incorporate our Core Values in every situation, project, and interaction.

As part of our team, you continually have the opportunity to contribute to something larger than yourself, while also receiving the training, development, and recognition that helps you in your career and your very own personal success story.



Beyond the everyday, our benefits program goes above and beyond. It ticks the usual boxes, and then some! We have been thriving for over 100 years and the benefits of working with a solid firm are bolstered not only by our financial stability, but most of all, by our people. For a full list of the perks you will enjoy as part of our firm, download our Professional Development Brochure.



Our firm is made up of nearly 200 people, across four offices in California. We cannot do what we do without a consistent commitment to mutual respect, communication, and development. Our people come to Lionakis from all over the country, and all over the world! Some of our staff and leadership have been here for decades, others, the last few years. There is space, a place, and recognition for the value that each person brings to the firm and our clients, and we are dedicated to making the world a better place, one project at a time.

Our people are asked to speak and mentor in-house and on nationally recognized industry platforms because they are recognized as experts – and they are wonderful human beings too! Our people are profiled on social media and local media outlets because they’re doing amazing things in our communities and neighborhoods, as well as on their work projects. The people of Lionakis come up with creative ways to solve problems, while working hard and playing hard – there is never any shortage of activities to lighten things up! Our firm leadership recognizes and honors our firm’s deep, rich history while continually taking steps to ensure our firm’s future by supporting those who make it what it is today and what it will be tomorrow.
