Transparent and Participatory Governance

Our firm has a longstanding tradition of transparent, participatory governance. Our Managing Partner (or another member of our Management Committee) gives a monthly briefing to every attorney about the firm's financial status, activities, strategic planning, and work of other firm committees. Important firm committees include young lawyers and staff members as well as senior partners. Our criteria for attorney compensation are detailed, written, and holistic, taking into account each person's overall contributions to the firm. We are proud of our tradition of approachable leadership and our efforts to build consensus when making important decisions.

Each of our lawyer's e-mail address is provided with his or her biography. If you are not a current client of our firm, you should not e-mail our lawyers with any confidential information or any information about a specific legal matter, given that our firm may presently represent persons or companies who have interests that are adverse to you. If you are not a current client and you e-mail any lawyer in our firm, you do so without any expectation of confidentiality. We will not establish a professional relationship with you via e-mail. Instead, you should contact our firm by telephone so that we can determine whether we are in a position to consult with you about any legal matters before you share any confidential or sensitive information with us.
