Our lawyers enjoy what they do and appreciate the opportunity to help our clients achieve their goals. We recruit new lawyers from more than 30 top law schools nationwide.

Our lawyers have skill sets that are both broad and deep, with significant emphasis on working with clients to develop cost-effective solutions consistent with client goals. We use technology in all aspects of our practice and welcome collaboration with client in-house counsel, management or other resources to help clients manage their legal budget.
