Nossaman LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The firm can improve by giving associates more of a say in the day to day operations of the firm. Many associates feel there is no way for them to give input. Associates also desire better compensation packages and more time off.

Pros: The best thing about this firm is that you will have guaranteed employment. If you look at the major shareholders, they have each been with the firm for ten-plus years. You too can have this kind of security at Nossaman.

Cons: The salary at this firm is not among the most competitive. You may find you can get paid more elsewhere. The culture is also known to be cut throat.
