Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Trust your employees more with their own decisions. If they are the ones that have been working on the file, then they actually might make a better decision than supervisors.

I stayed busy at this firm and I was never bored. The work was very challenging, if not overburdening. There were a variety of projects to get experience from.

You are under close supervision and scrutiny working here. The relationship between management and lower attorneys is tense and harsh.

Overview

Eckert Seamans is a full-service national law firm with a strong reputation and history of success that spans nearly 60 years. With more than 360 lawyers and government affairs professionals across a network of 14 offices, we provide clients with proactive, solution-oriented business and litigation counsel. Eckert Seamans was established in 1958 to meet the needs of some of the leading businesses in the country. Although our practice was limited to only 10 clients at the time, our founders formed key and enduring client partnerships in those early days, seven of which the firm still serves today. This commitment to building lasting relationships with our clients remains one of the hallmarks of our firm. Our clients trust us to guide them through their most challenging legal issues, most significant business transactions, and most critical disputes, which often cross practices and jurisdictions. Whether a Fortune 500 company, family-owned business, start-up, nonprofit, government entity, or individual, our clients receive the attention of highly skilled attorneys through our coordinated, multi-disciplinary team approach. This “one firm” principle allows us to bring the right mix of firm-wide skill and local-market presence to deliver the legal advice necessary to help our clients achieve their goals. And in our most successful relationships, our involvement has extended well beyond the law. We’ve become a part of our clients’ risk and project management teams, helping plan the strategies necessary to achieve their objectives and assisting in implementing their strategic plans successfully and cost-effectively. Partnering with our clients in this way—learning about their businesses and operations, and by extension, the dynamics that impact their industries—is a key component of our client service philosophy, which drives everything we do at Eckert Seamans and is a core element of our culture. Through our partnership with SCG Legal, a global network of over 145 independent law firms with more than 11,500 attorneys, our clients’ cross-border transactions and disputes are handled seamlessly with the help of alliance firms. This network also offers us access to evolving legislation and real-time business developments anywhere in the world.
