Firm Culture

Work Assignments

From the start, an associate deals with important matters and is given substantial responsibility. The associate's work is reviewed by an experienced attorney until the desired level of competence is achieved. Each associate progresses at his/her own pace. Associates are encouraged to develop a good working relationship with clients as quickly as possible. The Firm encourages associates to bill 1800 hours annually; however, in addition to effort, quality of work product weighs heavily in determining annual bonuses and compensation.

Membership

Associates are considered for membership at the end of seven and a half years, based upon individual merit. Principal criteria in membership decisions are overall performance and professional competence. Advancement to membership does not depend upon development of new business and there is no fixed ratio of members to associates.
