Chadbourne & Parke LLP is directed by a five-partner Management Committee elected by the partnership; day-to-day executive management is undertaken by the Firm's Managing Partner. All matters of significance to the Firm at large are discussed and voted on by the full partnership. Views are expressed openly and freely from all areas of the Firm, from new as well as senior partners. The partnership as a whole has a controlling voice over the direction of the Firm. In matters of collegiality and democracy, the partnership at Chadbourne is, we believe, rare among larger firms.

Chadbourne & Parke LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 01, 2017

If the training program were up to date this would be a truly tremendous place to work. It's sad to see such a successful firm with such a lackluster training program.

Pros : Everyone here is professional and friendly, from the partners on down to the secretaries. Everyone knows exactly what they are doing and the firm runs like a well-oiled machine. It's easy to find your niche and the work is always interesting. There are a lot of opportunities for advancement for those with determination and talent.
Cons : I've found that while there is plenty of room for advancement, the training programs in place are sorely lacking. Training materials are out of date and the program needs an overhaul.
