Moses & Singer LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Continue what you're doing because the employees are happy. I would recommend scheduling time at least once a month for a group lunch in order to discuss room for improvement and increase communication among coworkers.

Pros: There is a good work environment and a great level of trust given to each employee. There is not much "watching over the shoulder". There is diversity in the work load which allows me to stay on my feet and keep my interest level high.

Cons: With a laid-back approach to oversight, some things are not completed in a manner that is best fit for the practice. Everyone is held responsible for their own job which can make communication and group work difficult to set up and complete.

What Diversity Means to Us. At Moses & Singer, we appreciate and embrace a diversity of experiences, backgrounds and ideas, as they broaden our perspective, create trust, and make us a stronger firm.

Diversity is in our DNA. Moses & Singer was founded in the early twentieth century, in part in reaction to discriminatory employment practices faced at large New York City law firms of that era. The Firm is committed to appreciating and promoting diversity.

Simply Stated, Diversity is Good. It's good for us, our firm culture, our clients and our business. At Moses & Singer, achieving and maintaining diversity is not merely an aspirational effort. Rather, it is part of the ethos of the Firm to actively recruit, train and promote lawyers of diverse backgrounds that closely model the needs and composition of our increasingly global and diverse clients. Reflecting our diversity is our broad language capability

Summer associate program

Moses & Singer selects a small group of highly qualified law students from a variety of backgrounds for its summer program. The goal of our summer program is to introduce summer associates to our practice and to provide them with an opportunity to learn exactly what it is like to practice law as an associate at Moses & Singer. The intimate size of our program allows summer associates to interact meaningfully with our attorneys in an informal yet professional environment.

Our summer program serves as our principal source for recruiting new associates. As a result, Moses & Singer does not recruit third-year law students.
