Overview


"Always exceed expectations through teamwork and excellent client service." And we do that by striving to operate as a team with boldness, creativity, transparency and passion to provide the highest level of service and value to our clients. We have more than 14 years of experience offering alternative fee arrangements and experience with law project management. We are proactive about discussing options with our clients. In 2010, we institutionalized a client feedback program based on those conducted by the Big Four accounting firms. Sixty of the firm's key clients have participated in the program. Armstrong Teasdale was ahead of other St. Louis law firms eight years ago when it switched to a merit-based compensation program from lock-step compensation. We were the first St. Louis law firm to form a social media practice, which helps clients maximize the benefits of using social media sites while minimizing the risks. Our program providing support to women lawyers was the first in this region when it was launched by management in 1998. It has served as a model for other firms in our area. Today, two of Armstrong Teasdale’s five practice group leaders are women, as is our general counsel and Diversity Committee chair.

Armstrong Teasdale LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Management needs to step in at times and make decisions when employees can't. This will help move meetings and overall work along faster.

Pros: The people I work with at this company are some of the best I have ever worked with. Everyone is so friendly and polite and get along with one another tremendously. Meetings go great with everyone coming up with ideas and supporting everyone's ideas.

Cons: The problem with everyone being so nice at this firm is that it's difficult to make decisions sometimes. People are good at making suggestions, but coming up with a final solution can take a lot of time and effort.

Advice to law firm management: You can work on diverse cases and make your portfolio strong. My advice to the firm is that you have to work really hard to be recognized at this place. But once you achieve that recognition the firm provides you opportunity to move up faster. My advice to other attorneys is to work hard and make it count.

Pros: Great people and great support from across the board to help you progress with your career. There is a good training and a diverse industry learning experience. They do believe in work/life balance but at times it is hectic too. The workplace culture is competitive as well as professional.

Cons: Challenging work environment. Can be very fast paced with many down times. Success is primarily driven by billable hours and track record of accomplishments. Hardest part is utilization of targets and achieving deadlines. One more thing I would say that this firm does not have the best compensation in the industry.

Summer associate program


A high grade point average is great, but qualities like passion, curiosity, approachability and willingness to be coached are additional traits that we've found increase odds of a successful and gratifying legal practice.

Our associate summer program gives you the chance to use what you've learned but pushes and stretches you - all the while you're getting real law practice experience.

Don't worry about being stuck in the library or a file room for the summer. For several weeks, you'll be guided by a mentor and advisor and treated as a professional. You'll work with experienced attorneys on challenging matters. Every three to four weeks, you'll be assigned to a different practice group to expand your perspective and provide a broader experience. If you have a specific area of interest, we'll give you plenty of time to explore it.

You'll enjoy a full slate of planned activities that allow you to get to know our attorneys and the other summer associates in casual settings. Special seminars to teach soft skills, the business of law firms and trends in the legal profession are part of the summer curriculum.
