"Great Pay, High Expectations"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Keep paying at the top of the market and the talent will keep coming. Competitive pay is a great way to attract top tier lawyers to the firm.

Pros : Associates at this firm are compensated very well for their efforts, and there is plenty of opportunity for advancement for those who want it.
Cons : As is often the case, along with great pay comes great effort. Associates in this firm work very hard and there are a lot of very late nights.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
