Reviewed on March 02, 2021

Good perks, technology and benefits. Associate and paralegal experience will depend entirely on what practice group you are in. Generally a good firm to either be an equity partner or a young attorney looking for a resume builder. For everyone else, practice area will dictate satisfaction.

Insufficient support staff for associates, some partners are unsupportive on their matters, internal politics and firm structure impact collaboration, no pro bono credit, workload is heavy and compensation should be higher. Some practice groups have great leaders and others do not. People are generally stretched very thin and firm is slow to react to associate requests.

Almost all equity partners should be avoided.

Great camaraderie among most associates. Firm is “entrepreneurial” and rewards rainmakers. Associates keep a small percentage of what they originate.

The founding vision of Barack Ferrazzano in 1984 was to create a new model that departed from the standard "mega-firm" approaches and, instead, focused on delivering efficient, team-oriented services of the highest quality. Our founding partners - two highly respected law professors at Northwestern University and two former members of a prominent Chicago firm - were soon joined by like-minded colleagues also seeking an alternative to the large law firm environment. We have grown steadily ever si...
