"Best Firm in St Louis"

Former Employee Summer Associate in Missouri City, - Reviewed on September 14, 2018

I would suggest hosting more events for the associates and partners to get to know their coworkers outside of their practice areas.

Pros : Every attorney is brilliant and passionate about their work area. A wide variety of practice areas allows associates to experience new disciplines before they pick the best fit.
Cons : This is common among large firms, but it is difficult to get to know all of the other attorneys in a work environment this large.
