Overview

Choate is in some ways similar to most highly successful law firms, but in important other ways we are distinctly different from the vast majority of other major firms. We are proud of these differences and believe they materially benefit our clients and our lawyers. Choate has been one of the country's premier law firms for over a century. Our mission is to help important clients capitalize on their most promising opportunities, find solutions to their most pressing problems, and provide exceptional judgment, service and value. We also maintain as a core value giving back to the community which has given so much to us.

Choate Reviews

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Make it so that people have a better time while working here by providing them more useful feedback and making sure the hardest workers get the best rewards - this will also help people later in their careers as well, and increase their effort and commitment in the present.


Pros : The firm is relatively small, which most people tend to view positively - it makes for a pleasant and fairly relaxed atmosphere. Everyone seems to be on the same page, and the office runs efficiently. The mentoring program is great for new graduates.
Cons : Despite the pros of the mentoring program, it sometimes does not seem like there is a lot of room for advancement from here to other, larger firms. Some formal and informal feedback that superiors provide is simply not very helpful. Some people don't seem to carry their own weight.

I think the management should come up with some systems that allow fresh perspectives to have more of a say in things than they do right now.


Pros : The firm is all about business. There's a clear structure to everything, and that's why the firm has become such a behemoth in the industry. I always know exactly what I need to be doing.
Cons : Because of its size, it can be very resistant to new ideas. While it's a great place for newcomers in the law world to develop in a large, highly respected firm, it can be a little difficult at times to get the higher ups to let you do anything they didn't come up with themselves.
