Goldfarb & Lipman, LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on January 15, 2021

Advice to law firm management: Listen to the associates!

Pros: The associates at G&L are marginalized. Partners tend to work more like sole practitioners and do not seem to accept the role of mentor- manager.

Cons: Associates's opinions are not valued, even when they have way more experience on an issue than the partner. Thats the firm culture- rather rigid and top- down approach.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Job type: Full time
