Advice to law firm management: Not a true statement when you state that you value ideas........It's time to remove that quote from your hiring process...

Pros: Free Bagels

Partners to Avoid and Why: All the good guys are leaving....Some co chair don't even belong in the role.....

Advice to law firm management: Restructure HR to deal with the issues between employees so that the atmosphere can be more positive. Pay employees what they are worth.

Pros: The firm is small, so that fosters a sense of community. The work is fairly easy and workers are not pushed too hard. Decent balance for work and life. It is nice to be able to interact with everyone.

Cons: So much laziness! Complaints and some nastiness between coworkers are frequent, and HR doesn't seem to take complaints seriously. Pay is less than average.

At Burns & Levinson, we practice law differently. While our attorneys agree that results drive our business, building relationships with our clients and providing value added service is the key to our success. We work hard to provide the legal experience and industry knowledge you need, as well as the personal attention you deserve - adding value to your life and the life of your business. At Burns & Levinson, your personal and business success is our top priority - so whatever your legal need, consider it done. As a Boston-based firm with over 120 attorneys and offices in Providence and New York, as well as in the Merrimack Valley / North Shore, Metro West and South Shore areas of Massachusetts, we are large enough to represent clients in complex and sophisticated matters, yet small enough to be very responsive, providing direct partner-level, proactive advice. Burns & Levinson has two wholly owned subsidiaries, one of which is located in Boston and the other in Montreal, Quebec. Our lawyers are experienced and extremely motivated. They're willing to go beyond their traditional role and do whatever it takes to get results. No matter what your legal need, we've got you covered.
