"This is one of our favorite firms. Founded on the intellectual and academic foundations of the law, this firm has a casual open door policy where lawyers are just as likely to be debating the constitutionality of a local statute and discussing the weather. Prominent lecturers and professors in the community, this firm's partners are truly excited about the practice of law, and instill that same feeling throughout the firm. With beautiful open offices, this firm's tries to be as progressive as possible when it comes to lawyers' lives (and remain profitable). Associates say that partners are truly accommodating in terms of hours and assignments, which is not to say that the lawyers here don't work hard. But, when a partner takes the time to tell an associate about a project well enough in advance to allow the associate to budget their time, the office environment can substantially improve. And so it is in this full service practice, where we believe some of the most exciting work is being done in the intellectual property arena."
