The attorneys, from senior partners to associates, are friendly and helpful and very supportive of each other. Everyone is approachable and very practical." There's plenty of interesting work to be done, and associates say they receive a variety of assignments. "I think they do everything they can to make working here as satisfying as possible," opines one source. Says a litigator, "I handle an incredibly diverse range of cases, from securities to sex discrimination and everything in between, RICO, tort, contract, pro bono..."
