"Litigation and Business Law Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Revise your approach to how people move up in the firm. Not everyone is single with no other life outside the office to get in the way of working long hours.

Pros : There is plenty of challenging work, a long list of great clients, fantastic lawyers and the senior management is simply outstanding. There is great support on you cases from management and associates.
Cons : They will work you until you drop if you let them, but you really have to do this if you want to move up. Moving up can be a difficult process unless you really put in a lot of overtime and produce big.
