Review:

"A firm where you will be expected to give no less than 110%"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Encouraging a healthier work-life balance in employees would go a long way toward improving employee morale. However, the firm appears to enjoy a solid reputation from all that investment of time.

Pros : At this firm you will find out what kind of lawyer you really are. You will work very long hours, but you will gain valuable experience that can only help you later on in your career. There are also important contacts to make here.
Cons : You will not have a social life at this firm. The firm is expected to be your life, and you must recognize this and put in the required hours.
