We empower our lawyers and team members to assume responsibility early, and to do work that is done only at more senior levels in other law firms.
We value merit and excellence beyond formal seniority.
Our lawyers focus their adversarial skills on our client’s opponents, not on internal competition.
My core belief is that genuine mentorship and removing these barriers for brilliant young and women practitioners to unleash their potential are a large part of what allows us to be an unbeatable machine.
