- Reviewed on June 29, 2016

Advice to law firm management: Attorneys often want more information and input and while good with more personal information coming certain attorneys need more attention than others.

Pros: A great place to work. Great lawyers, wonderful staff support, good clients and interesting work. Can always find someone to help out for a client in an area that I have no expertise in the same manner as I would treat the client. Good, thoughtful leadership makes for a good working environment.

Cons: Frankly, there are not any. I have been here for many years, though many changes in leadership and while there are probably no perfect jobs, the work here comes as close as one can imagine.

Diversity


Dykema understands that diversity in the workplace is not only a sound practice, it's good business. We know that a diverse workforce helps us better understand and serve our clients, and enables us to have a positive impact on the communities in which we work.

At Dykema, diversity is not a policy designed to meet legal requirements for equal opportunity or affirmative action. Rather, it's a key component of our corporate culture: a culture built on the idea of inclusion, in which we promote dignity and respect for all, and seek opportunities to learn from one another, even when those perspectives are shaped from different backgrounds and experiences.

Our commitment to diversity ensures that all-without regard to gender, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, age, religion or disability-are welcomed. To achieve this, we develop, implement and monitor programs and activities that not only enhance diversity and inclusion, but eliminate any obstacles to those initiatives.

Summer associate program


Dykema provides law students with the opportunity to experience the practice of law at our Firm through our summer associate program. Participants receive a detailed, realistic view of the Firm, its lawyers and the social and cultural aspects of the communities in which our offices are located. Our Firm's tradition of flexibility also applies to our summer program. Summer associates can choose to receive assignments from all areas of the Firm, or to narrow their assignments to specific practice groups or areas of interest. Several members and associates monitor and distribute assignments. They also meet with the summer associates to discuss assignments and workloads, as well as substantive and procedural questions. In addition, each summer associate receives orientation and support throughout the summer from member and associate advisors. We encourage all Dykema lawyers to give summer associates as much feedback as possible. In addition to the feedback provided to the summer associates directly by the attorneys, the program coordinators formally seek it from the assignors after the completion of each project. As a result, we are provided the opportunity to measure how likely a summer associate is to succeed in our environment.

What distinguishes our summer program? Our Summer Associates are connected to the Firm via our Summer Associate Extranet early in the calendar year. This tool enables us to exchange information and answer questions quickly and far in advance of their arrival.

Summer associates work on a wide variety of projects and assignments, spending significant time in non-research activities. They help prepare briefs, pleadings, memoranda, opinion letters and other legal documents.

We do not take a "cookie-cutter" approach. We look for the most expedient ways to address each client's particular legal issues. In a very real sense, we are "lawyers' lawyers" – we have represented seven of the largest law firms in Michigan when they have had legal issues. This says a lot about our reputation and record of success. We have avoided unrestrained expansion in favor of maintaining a close-knit working group. We put matters under direct control of experienced attorneys, n...
