Seward & Kissel LLP Reviews

"Failed basic law for greed"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on May 19, 2021

Advice to law firm management: You can stop illegally prosecuting Steven Donziger. You could cut ties and stop representing Chevron or Chevron interests. You could retire your law license and hope to avoid corruption charges. You could go states evidence and turn on all the corrupt elites and maybe your proteges won't be ashamed of you.

Pros: Money and connections. Your get connections to many elites and have the chance to do them favors. No need for morals, ethics, or integrity. Plenty of secret bonuses and benefits to earn.

Cons: Willing to do anything for a few dollars. Encouraged to find creative ways to abuse the law and the judicial system to make money. Working for massive multinational conglomerates to greatly damage humanity and the planet for money. Ashamed to associate with them and have to scrub yourself every night to get rid of the gross feelings. Will probably lose any moral people like your partner, associates, and friends if they find out who you work for.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Not much difference between the partners in the end. Just different approaches to being borderline corrupt.

Favorite Things About this Firm: It was great watching them research laws to find out how unethical or immortal they could get away with. Creative ways to manipulate others to get their money. They are/were acting as public prosecutors and as such lose their private protections.

Advice to law firm management: Refresh inward arrangements with respect to non-legitimate staff. A great deal of "rules" aren't composed, or on the off chance that they are it's in a to a great degree dated guide. Tune in to the charged and give reasonable appraisals. It would be ideal if you consider the ability sets of all representatives and give testing work.

Pros: Individuals can be exceptionally friendly and cheerful. It is Incredible for its investment administration and related gatherings. Workplaces may offer a pleasant view while working. Partners are available, extraordinary and dynamic. A collegial and proficient atmosphere pervades the workplace.

Cons: Sub-market rewards and bonuses, tech and advantages (contrasted with substantial NYC based firms). Medicinal benefits are costly. The firm is modest with specific supplies that are required to complete workplace duties. Repayments take quite a while when you are required to be reimbursed. There is not a lot of development opportunity and at times you may be relying upon your group for assistance. The work can sometimes be constrained and dull. The programming the firm uses is not at maximum quality. Administration is not always available when needed.
