Work and Life

Our people work hard, but that doesn’t exempt us from life’s challenges and stresses. We do our best to accommodate short-term circumstances and long-term needs of our professionals with progressive policies and programs that are consistently recognized as best in class.


We support a wide range of possible work arrangements, designed to ensure that productivity at work is a complement—not a conflict—to satisfaction at home. If that means a flextime arrangement or some other non-traditional schedule, so be it. If it means a temporary or short-term flextime arrangement to handle a class, care for a family member, or a community interest program, we do our best to accommodate your needs.

Clearly, flextime doesn’t fit every situation—some positions lend themselves to more flexibility than others. But the firm believes that when professional progress might be adversely affected by personal responsibilities, flextime is a welcome option.

Individuals are given freedom for how they use their generous paid time off benefits, which begin accruing immediately and can be used for any personal need.

The firm also offers options for working reduced schedules and supports professionals taking leaves of absence, including for new baby care leaves for mothers and fathers, for caring for other family needs or for disabilities.
