Culhane Meadows PLLC, one of the largest non-traditional law firms in the country, seeks experienced and self-motivated partner-level attorneys in Washington, DC who desire a better way to practice the tune of taking home up to 80% of what they bill and collect.

We are actively recruiting new partners with portable business who are excited about the prospect of growing Culhane Meadows’ national practice in the District of Columbia.

Culhane Meadows is a full-service commercial law firm comprised exclusively of former Big Law alums who were eager for a smarter, fresher and more efficient approach to the delivery of legal services. Our primary market is business owners (and General Counsels) who want an alternative to Big Law fees, without compromising quality of counsel or service received.

We are comprised entirely of partner-level attorneys and we do not hire any associate attorneys. Accordingly, candidates must have at least 8 years of practice, including meaningful training and experience from an AmLaw 200 firm (or equivalent in-house experience from a respected corporation). As a full-service business firm, we seek candidates with traditional practice areas such as:

  • General Corporate & Business Services

  • Mergers & Acquisitions

  • Real Estate

  • Labor & Employment

  • Securities & SEC

  • Banking & Finance

  • Franchise Law

  • Commercial Litigation

  • Intellectual Property

  • Tax

A primary reason for our success among so many Fortune-ranked clients is that Culhane Meadows is extremely selective and we invite only the best of the best to become partners at our firm. For this reason, candidates should have an exceptional academic background coupled with training and experience from a large national law firm. Law review and judicial clerkships are a plus.

Company Profile

Want a better way to practice law? Culhane Meadows is one of the largest national cloud-based firms with nearly 60 attorneys serving seven major business markets (Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New York City and Washington DC)--with additional expansion on the horizon. We also happen to be the largest national full-service law firm that has been certified as a women-owned firm (i.e., WBE) and we are a proud member of NAMWOLF (National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms). We have built a true meritocracy where partners are rewarded for their hard work and the playing field is completely level for everyone under our formula-based compensation model, regardless of gender, race, religion, orientation or any other personal characteristics. Culhane Meadows offers experienced former Big Law attorneys a powerful platform to further grow their law practice within a collaborative and financially transparent environment without the heavy sacrifice of work-life balance required in most traditional firms. Over 20 Fortune-ranked clients have embraced our innovative legal services platform because they receive responsive and exceptional partner-level counsel and experience at a fraction of what they are used to paying for identical services at Big Law. Several key factors distinguish Culhane Meadows from traditional law firms: (1) The firm has no minimum billable quotas that create inherent and often-ignored conflict between a client’s needs and a law firm’s financial demands, (2) our partners have freedom and flexibility to work remotely from any physical locations that suit the partner and his/her clients' needs, including home offices or client job sites, and (3) we use a completely transparent and objective compensation formula that eliminates office politics and management bureaucracy. The result is happier lawyers who genuinely love what they do...and they get to retain more of their earnings while doing it! Our firm was born out of a desire to find real solutions to problems within the legal marketplace, all to make life easier for our clients and to give our partners a better way to practice their profession. What’s our inspiration? Surrounding ourselves with exceptional individuals. People and businesses that solve real problems are what compel and motivate us in all that we do and they push us to accomplish even more. One of the things we find most rewarding and motivating is asking “Why?” and “How?” when it comes to looking at a problem. We challenge the status quo and always ask: Can we do this better? Faster? More efficiently? Answering these questions is easier when you’re inspired by the people you surround yourself with. Fortunately, at Culhane Meadows, we intentionally surround ourselves with the best of the best attorneys and we find daily inspiration among each of our partners. Perhaps that's why many of our partners will tell you there is no better place to practice law than at Culhane Meadows!
