Everything about this firm is likeable. We felt very comfortable in its offices after our recent visit there. "Who's your decorator?" we asked the Managing Partner, who seemed stunned that we would even have interest in such things. Indeed, this firm has very nice offices, and the attorneys here are very nice too. This firm, a branch of a large international firm, has managed to attract some really supreme talent to its Los Angeles offices and is doing very well in its IP, environmental and litigation practice. We particularly like the artwork in the lobby, which has a soothing, almost hypnotic feel to it. Kudus to their art chooser department! This firm is a good place to work and associates here are not expected to do much over 2,000 hours per year. People coming out of this firm all tend to have a lot of self- confidence. This firm does not demoralize its associates and gives them confidence to pursue interests outside of law because they know they are good. It's a large branch of one of the world's biggest law firms, offering a diverse, full-service practice to an impressive array of regional, national and foreign corporations and financial and securities institutions. As impressive as their client list is, their staff of associates and partners includes many of the greats who served on Capitol Hill and in other branches and departments of the federal government. This firm is a very good place to be an associate and gain introspection about life outside of the law.
