Values

Our values provide the benchmark for our collective and individual conduct and direction ranging from the Firm governance and management to our approach to client service.  The firm is a values-driven law firm, guided by the principles of excellence, diligence, leadership, solution-oriented, people-oriented, and diversity.

Excellence

Quality is the long-standing common culture shared by every attorney and office of our firm.  We are not the firm highly ranked by number of attorneys and offices.  We pursue excellence and aim to deliver quality in all aspects of our services.

Diligence

The firm places very strong emphasis on the importance of work ethics and diligence.  We believe we are obligated to promptly provide our advice and judgment to every issue the clients are concerned to by closely and diligently working with the clients.

Diversity

Diversity is the essential feature of the firm, in which people value individual and group differences, respect the perspectives of others, and communicate openly.  We have made considerable progress in advancing opportunities for minorities, finding ways to create career pathways for people from diverse backgrounds.

Leadership

We build and maintain an environment in which creative people thrive.  We value the people who can effectively lead our Firm, its practice groups, offices, departments, and initiatives.  We encourage our diverse lawyers and staff to lead by providing advancement and leadership opportunities to them.  We actively participate in the social activities and events to achieve the leadership positions outside.

Solution-Oriented

In most situations, people look for legal service because they have problems to solve. They need to rely on the professional’s knowledge and experience, so they patiently and sometimes enjoyably listen to your reasoning and analysis.  That is what the clients pay for.  That is what the clients need.  Only oriented by solution, the research, analysis, reasoning, argument, and all the work we do for the clients are meaningful and valuable.  Therefore, we always keep the question in mind—what is the best solution for the clients.

Pro Bono

A commitment to public service has always been deeply ingrained in our firm culture.  Community service has been woven into the fabric of the firm when it was founded and we are closely involved with several civic organizations in New York City.  We believe that privileges and advantages come with a responsibility to help those less fortunate, and this conviction helps to guide our priorities as an organization.  Our Pro bono and Community Service programs extend to all of the regions where we and our clients work and live. Attorneys and administrative staff alike give time and resources focused on several areas, in particular domestic violence prevention, education, and discrimination.

We encourage our lawyers to become involved in public service at the earliest stages of their careers by treating pro bono hours as billable hours and by recognizing and rewarding associates who have achieved success in pro bono representations.

In addition to actual pro bono legal work, our lawyers have been active in a wide variety of charitable endeavors, working with, sitting on boards of, and even running, many types of civic, community, cultural, governmental, educational and medical organizations, a number of which seek to improve the lives of the less fortunate.

Our Pro Bono Practice strengthens our bonds to the communities in which we practice and makes a profound difference in the lives of our clients.
