Keesal, Young & Logan Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Have your managers actually manage the office. I'm not saying we can't socialize, but you have people getting paid and barely doing any work!

Pros: They have a great office with great benefits. I'd often stay in for lunch because we were provided with free food and beverages. The offices themselves were clean and well kept, and it was generally a very decent office space.

Cons: I really couldn't stand all the childishness that went on in the office. There was too much fraternizing and not enough work being done. Some of us had trouble working with all the joking that was going on--and this was every day! Favoritism ran wild here.

Keesal, Young & Logan practices law in a distinctly different manner. We are a community of lawyers who take our commitment to one another as seriously as our commitment to our clients. What sets KYL apart in the practice of law is the value we place on personal relationships and shared achievement. As it turns out, this attitude affects everything we do. The power of simple human courtesy is astounding. It opens minds, establishes bridges, creates opportunities for agreement, and promotes understanding. Clients love it. Judges and juries respond to it. Legal colleagues respect it. Talented young lawyers seek it out. Indeed, the professional comity and collaborative spirit that have shaped the practice of law at KYL and helped build our firm over the past four decades consistently attracts and retains the finest legal practitioners. The results are striking. During the 42 years in which we’ve built our practice, KYL has produced consistently high quality legal work, strong, lasting relationships with our clients, a respected position in the legal communities in which we practice, and one of the best litigation track records in the country. Our firm’s reputation as formidable litigators and effective corporate legal practitioners is built on thorough preparation, creative strategic thinking, and strong courtroom advocacy. The principles that drive our success are those found in most thriving organizations: Integrity, honesty, fairness in our dealings with our colleagues, our clients and our legal adversaries; an expectation of excellence in our work, through both mastery of the law and careful preparation; a common-sense approach to problem solving that respects and conserves our clients’ resources; a responsive, service-oriented attitude in our working relationships; and a willingness to engage issues and opponents head-on when necessary, and win. KYL today maintains offices in five cities, serving the business and civil litigation needs of clients throughout the Western United States and Pacific Rim.

Keesal, Young & Logan's annual summer associate program is designed to be both meaningful and enjoyable. The program offers a wide variety of work experiences for the summer associates and opportunities for the firm to evaluate the skills and abilities of the summer associates.

The firm believes its summer associates can and should be allowed to make significant contributions to the handling and developments of cases. Summer associates are given opportunities to prepare motions and other pleadings, analyze documents, draft transactional documents, and researching issues of law important to our clients' cases. We do not invent projects simply to test the skills of our summer associates.
