Thompson Coburn LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: HR or management needs to be more open to criticism and improve the faults within the system. Some have left because of it.

Pros: I worked here since I started in the field, and all my teammates have been bright and top of the line as far as work ethic.

Cons: HR doesn't seem to be open to critic as far as other teams or groups within the business is concerned.

Advice to law firm management: Get ready to put in work from day one, and get ready to make an excellent impression. This firm gives you the chance to really make a name for yourself if you are willing to put in the time and effort to earn that respect.

Pros: There is a plethora of networking contacts here, and you will get to know some of the top legal minds in the area. That kind of contact list cannot be bought. You will want to make the most of this chance to get to know the top talent.

Cons: As with most law firms, there is stiff competition for billable hours and for salary. You might find you'll make more money elsewhere. You might also find that your client list is not as long as you'd like here.

Hiring Criteria

Thompson Coburn LLP. follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.

Our preference is to meet with candidates who are ranked at or near the top of their law school classes and who possess personal attributes, leadership qualities and work experiences and/or work ethic consistent with the best traditions of the legal profession.

Pro bono

Our firm encourages all of its lawyers to participate in pro bono activities for which we give credit as for billable work. Each lawyer can work on projects and legal issues of his or her own choosing, and even new associates and students in our summer program have opportunities to become involved in pro bono matters. Our goals for pro bono work include serving the public, providing quality legal services to persons or organizations who could not otherwise afford them, and providing practice opportunities and experience for attorneys-especially associates-not otherwise readily available to them.
