NOT RECOMMENDED Read More About the BCG Attorney Search Law Firm Ranking System

Our advice to avoid this firm is grounded in negative reviews and personal experience.
Not Recommended law firms may have a history of complaints and negative reviews, possibly making them risky workplaces for associates and other employees. These firms may exhibit toxic work environments marked by a lack of coordination between departments and management, possible political strife, and different problematic dynamics. The management at Not Recommended firms may be unresponsive to concerns about human resources or political issues, leading to high employee dissatisfaction and, in some cases, negative experience. As a result, these firms may be considered undesirable choices for those seeking stable and fulfilling employment in the legal industry. Some law firms ranked Not Recommended or below are done so based on private information possessed by BCG Attorney Search. This information makes us nervous about recommending this firm to others until these issues are corrected.
We have been in this business for 25+ years, have spoken with countless attorneys from this firm, and believe that certain firms (most firms) err on the side of being more positive than negative places to work. There are also firms where the reports from attorneys are more negative than positive and have been for years. This does not mean every attorney has a negative experience at Not Recommended firms, every department is problematical, or every office is. Over time, cultural, management, and other issues result in an overall negative rating. We are careful about making these ratings only when confidential; ongoing adverse reports are confirmed by our experience with the firm and speaking with many attorneys there that seem consistently more negative than positive.
