Are you a current or former Big Law refugee who's feeling burned out, beat down or tired of Big Law bureaucracy? Are you looking for a better way to practice law where you can actually enjoy your work again? If so, Culhane Meadows might be just the place for you! 

We are one of the largest non-conventional law firms in the country, meaning that our attorneys work remotely from home offices (or anywhere else that meets the clients' needs), yet still get to enjoy high-level work for Fortune-ranked clients on par with traditional Big Law. Simply put, no other national firm matches the flexibility, work-life balance, and high-level sophistication of work found in our innovative platform. In fact, Law (dot) com recently included Culhane Meadows among the country's Top 7 most innovative law firms in 2017! (We were the only non-AmLaw 200 firm on their list!)

We are actively recruiting experienced and self-motivated partner-level attorneys with portable client business (minimum ~$250,000) who are excited about the prospect of helping us disrupt the traditional legal market by transforming Big Law into Smart Law.

We are a fast-growing full-service business law firm comprised almost 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 the quality of counsel or services received.

We are currently comprised of more than 50 partner-level attorneys and we do not hire any associates. Accordingly, all candidates must have at least 10 years of practice, including meaningful training and experience from an AmLaw 200 firm. Although we seek candidates from all traditional business-related legal fields, we are specifically looking for candidates in the following practice areas in D/FW:

  • General Corporate & Business Services
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Securities & SEC
  • Banking & Finance
  • Franchise Law
  • Commercial Litigation
  • Intellectual Property (including Patent, TM and IP Litigation)
  • Tax

A primary reason for our success among 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 prior practice at a large national AmLaw 200 firm.

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). We also happen to be the largest national full-service law firm that has been certified as a women-owned firm (i.e., WBE). We have built a true meritocracy where partners are rewarded for their hard work and the playing field is completely level for everyone, 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. Nearly twenty 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!
