Hancock Estabrook, LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The firm would do well to encourage employee wellness and allow them to get more rest on weekends. Employees should know in advance the kind of work environment that they will be working in.

Pros: The firm rewards people who push themselves to the very limit of their endurance. So if that's you, you can expect bonuses and other rewards at the end of the year. Those who really distinguish themselves will have a chance at partnership track.

Cons: Employee burnout is a huge problem here. Not everyone thrives in the fast paced environment of this law firm. Many will want to quit and find work elsewhere, because of the stress and long work hours.

Hancock Estabrook, LLP Awards and Recognitions

Hancock Estabrook is ranked as an

Summer associate program

Our program introduces law students to our Firm, allows them to experience the practical aspects of private practice and helps them focus on one or more areas of interest. We give our summer associates responsibilities that resemble those of new associates. Each is assigned a supervising attorney and an associate mentor to help regulate the flow of assignments, facilitate exposure to different practice areas, provide guidance and feedback and generally act as a sounding board. Rather than confine our students to a formal rotation program, we expose our summer associates to all of our practice areas throughout the summer. While research and writing are important parts of the summer program, we provide our summer associates with numerous opportunities to attend client meetings, trials, depositions and motions.
