Our associates who join from law school work directly with experienced partners, fostering close working relationships with both colleagues and clients. We staff matters leanly, allowing associates to take on meaningful responsibility at an early stage in their careers. The level of responsibility that an associate shoulders is determined by the associate’s willingness to take on greater responsibility, not by artificial or hierarchical structures found at other firms. Associate training is hands-on, and creative and independent thinking is encouraged.
