All businesses have essentially two choices: they can invest in their people and risk that they leave; or they can choose not to invest in their people and risk that they stay. We choose the former.
At Structure Law Group, LLP we encourage professional development and upward mobility.
For attorney candidates, there is a reason that we don't use Partner and Associate titles. When has a client ever said, "we've got a real issue here, let's get an associate to help"? Clients want attorneys. Good ones, to be sure. But artificial distinctions between two attorneys who have the exact same license…well, that's not something you will find at our firm. Wherever we can, we have eliminated the obstacles, both obvious and hidden, that create glass ceilings or otherwise limit professional growth. Training and mentorship are actively promoted. Our internal culture is collaborative and not competitive - at least not with each other.
For non-attorney candidates, many of our staff had never worked at a law firm before. Nor have they stayed in the position that they were hired into for very long. Training and mentorship are actively promoted. We want our staff to excel and to rise. We flexibly strive to craft the position and path that is best suited to each individual, provided it aligns with providing exceptional service to our clients.
For everyone, we are all people first. If you are missing dinner to work, or spending your weekend in the office, you may be the only one. And like all people, we've had our share of weddings, children, health issues, the loss of loved ones and the all the other life events that people go through. We cover for each other so when a life event happens, the job is one less thing to stress about.
All that said, we do and expect very high-quality work on very significant projects, including bet-the-company litigation and deals and transactions of all shapes and sizes. Our clients are all over the world, so an evening call with Asia or a morning call with Europe may need to happen. But we find the right balance.
If all of this sounds like an environment that would work for you, you may be a good fit for our team.
