About the Firm

Associate Reviews


  • “I find that more often than not, it feels like I am working with long term friends. We will often get together socially on our own accord—because we want to, not because there is a firm-related event. I can trust my teammates, both professionally and personally. That includes lawyers and staff alike.”
  • “There is a major emphasis on attorney well-being and retention. In the few months I have been there, I have had multiple conversations about mental health and have gotten to know many partners, even while being remote. The attorneys here know each other and care about one another on a personal level.”
  • “The pandemic has obviously diminished social opportunities within the firm, but, previously, the firm did a commendable job of encouraging a collegial and welcoming atmosphere for attorneys to interact with one another.”
  • “Overall, the firm's culture is pretty supportive. People want to network and get to know their colleagues. There are plenty of firm sponsored events like gumbo competitions and birthday cake Tuesdays.”

We are committed to these efforts because diverse and inclusive teams reflect the world we serve and produce better results for our clients. Most importantly, a diverse and inclusive organization is simply better. LEADERSHIP Our Managing Partner, Steven Sonberg, and Chair of the Directors..."

Getting Hired Here

  • “Typical BigLaw requirements—stellar credentials and law school name recognition. Interesting or valuable work experience can make up for a less recognizable law school. An LLM is essentially required to be considered for a position in Tax and/or Private Wealth Services, if not a litigator.”
  • “I believe the firm is looking for well-rounded individuals who have ‘real-life’ experience. The majority of associates in my class had other careers before attending law school. I do not know about ‘feeder’ schools or training for the interviewing attorneys.”
  • “We look for a little more variety than just a resume/transcript, which is great.”
  • “They asked a lot about my previous career, my interests in school and life, and how I would fit. There were none of the stereotypical interview questions like ‘what would you do if this happens?’ or ‘tell us about a time you failed and why.’”
