Commitment to Quality
We are committed to providing consistently world-class legal services, as nothing less will suffice for the challenging matters our clients bring to
us. Clients do not come to us with easy questions, simple cases, or routine transactions. Clients come to us because of our reputation for
outstanding service delivered promptly.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion arises from our legacy of leadership on civil and human rights issues and our belief that diversity and
inclusion is a key driver of the value the firm provides to clients. The range of perspectives, backgrounds and talents of our lawyers helps us
develop creative and effective solutions for some of our clients’ most complex and challenging legal issues.
As business and technology have become more complex, the law has also become more complex. Where once every lawyer was a generalist, now we are a
firm of lawyers who have fine-tuned their skills in specialty areas. The globalization of the economy, the advent of the Internet, and the
overwhelming importance of technology and intellectual property have transformed our lives.
Collaboration and Collegiality
We believe the best results are achieved by drawing on the exceptional talents and varied experience of all of our lawyers. Accordingly, we share our
time, ideas, and inspiration with our colleagues. We view every client as a client of the firm, not of an individual lawyer, and our lawyers reach
out naturally to other lawyers in the firm with the necessary experience to meet a client’s needs.
Because the law is still a profession as well as a business, lawyers have special obligations to the administration of justice and the development of
the law. We encourage our lawyers to meet these obligations through pro bono work, government service, service to the bar, and teaching. We also
urge our lawyers to write and speak on legal issues and to participate in the affairs of their larger communities.
We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to help strengthen our communities. We support public institutions and charitable organizations in
the communities in which we practice. We encourage leadership and support on the part of our attorneys through matching gift programs and service on
boards and committees.
Exceptionally Talented Lawyers
The lifeblood of the firm is the recruitment of exceptionally talented lawyers. We hire lawyers with diverse backgrounds but with the common trait of
outstanding academic and personal achievements. We then seek to make the most of their talents by giving them the training, support, and challenging
opportunities they need to become accomplished lawyers of the first rank.
