Chadbourne & Parke LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Team building exercises need to become a regular thing to get people more relaxed and better at working with each other.

Pros: The team here is extremely small and you will be able to interact with basically the whole firm every day.

Cons: Due to the small team size drama gets out of hand fast and it is hard to stop it when it does start.

Advice to law firm management: This firm needs to hire someone to do the smaller tasks throughout the day, this way other employees won't have to do tasks that take away from their main work.

Pros: The hours for this firm were perfect and I felt like I could balance my home life very easily with my job. Very rarely did we have to work overtime and when we did we were always told days in advance. I thought management did a great job keeping employees in line.

Cons: There was a lot of meticulous work that needed to be done consistently and it always interfered with my own work. I felt like many of these tasks were pointless or could have been done by someone hired to do so. The company is quite disorganized at time.

Chadbourne & Parke LLP is directed by a five-partner Management Committee elected by the partnership; day-to-day executive management is undertaken by the Firm's Managing Partner. All matters of significance to the Firm at large are discussed and voted on by the full partnership. Views are expressed openly and freely from all areas of the Firm, from new as well as senior partners. The partnership as a whole has a controlling voice over the direction of the Firm. In matters of collegiality and democracy, the partnership at Chadbourne is, we believe, rare among larger firms.
