Tonkon Torp, LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on September 09, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Make more positions available to keep senior employees and allow them to progress further in their career. It will be for the better.

Pros: This firm is a great place to be. Everyone is very friendly and willing to work for the best of the firm. I feel like I am always included and I enjoy it very much.

Cons: I feel like there isn't much room to move up in this firm and this will lead to me having to leave at some point to further my career.

In 1974, three of Portland's best known business lawyers, Moe Tonkon, Morris Galen and Fred Torp came together to create a new, nine lawyer firm. Today Tonkon Torp is one of the largest firms headquartered in Oregon, with over 80 lawyers dedicated to a sophisticated business practice. Though the firm's size and practices have grown over the past 40 years, our core values of excellent legal work, leadership, client service and community involvement remain unchanged. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and the personal quality of our services, and we consider the goodwill of our clients and our professional reputation to be our most valuable assets. Tonkon Torp doesn’t try to be all things to all people. Although we provide a full spectrum of business law and litigation services, we believe our focus on efficiency and results is what sets us apart from other law firms. Clients view Tonkon Torp as a trusted adviser because our relationships are rooted in a thorough understanding of their business and industries and a shared vision of their goals.

Summer associate program

The work our Summer Associates do is the same work our lawyers do. We have real projects that are needed by real clients on real issues. And, because the projects are related to work that is being done in the firm on pending matters, you will often have the opportunity to observe or participate in events arising from the project. The Summer Associate who assists in researching issues for a deposition will get to sit in on the deposition; a Summer Associate who researches an issue for a motion will likely be involved in drafting the motion or memorandum and then have the opportunity to watch oral argument on the motion; a Summer Associate who analyzes a tax issue in connection with a pending transaction will be asked to assist in and observe the final closing. These kinds of hands-on experiences will give you a very realistic exposure to the practice of law at Tonkon Torp.
