We have a supportive, collegial culture that emphasizes team work, including across offices and practice groups. Internal competition is discouraged and diversity is embraced. Before anyone new is hired, we strive to provide ample opportunity to all partners (and other attorneys who may be working with or for the new hire) to meet and greet and weigh in on the hire. We do not want to hire anyone who would hurt the team chemistry we have. We believe Ulmer & Berne is a really good place to work for attorneys and non-attorneys and are determined to do everything in our power to keep it that way.
While we’re devoted to working hard for our clients and we pay attention to statistics, we don’t operate our firm like a factory; we understand, promote and compensate for the many non-statistical contributions made by our professionals and appreciate the necessity of work-life balance for all members of our firm – attorneys and staff alike.
