not to sit and listen
not to carry someone’s bags
not to take notes
not other lawyers at the firm
Not bag carriers.
And learn from our losses
Each other. All the time. No exceptions.
Our emphasis is on quality, not quantity. We do not believe in overworking a matter in order to bill hours – we focus on resolution . This means many of our associates get to handle depositions, client meetings, alternative dispute resolution and trial work and our clients receive the benefit of a deeply knowledgeable team and efficient defense.
Companies hire us to do their most important and challenging cases. As a result, we do some of the most interesting work around.
We are a meritocracy. You are not judged by anything other than the quality of your work and content of your character.
If you demonstrate you are capable of doing the work that a fifth year lawyer would do at another firm your first year, you will do it.Our goal is to provide every associate the opportunity to master the skills needed to excel in the courtroom and the board room. Some of the best trial lawyers in the country will show you how to become a master of the courtroom.
