Our Culture

We have created a culture where hunger wins over hubris; where IQ is a given and EQ is a must. Our clients require us to be agile and nimble, to move at the speed of the market. Our collaborative approach is central to maintaining that pace. 

From day one, our team members collaborate with one another and across teams and departments. Our singular focus means that our lawyers don’t work in silos, which makes for a better client experience. Supplemented by technology to support collaboration, teams share knowledge and systems that create efficiencies and high quality work. Our teamwork is one of our greatest assets and yields world-class service, skill and expertise. 

We augment our lawyers' capabilities with mentorship circles and training programs that share insights gleaned from the tens of thousands of transactions our firm has handled over 25+ years. For lawyers who have a passion for the venture ecosystem and want a legal career in the technology or life sciences industries or working with the most impressive investors worldwide, our firm is a place to build expertise, expand their networks and get hands-on experience.

Collaboration is how we were built, why we are thriving, and how we will sustain our success in the future.
