The law firm of Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris was founded by BigLaw refugees. We believe that our lawyers should handle the day-to-day aspects of our clients’ cases, work on improving our trial and other lawyering skills, and worry about whether we are returning the best possible results for our clients. We have maintained these principles and work to instill them in all of our attorneys.
Other firms talk about diversity initiatives. We don’t talk about diversity. We have diversity. As evidenced by our track record and recognition, we recognize the unique edge our diversity gives us.
The Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris philosophy is based on the premise that clients deserve – and need – experienced and qualified lawyers handling all facets of their litigation matters, without paying abusive amounts for such service.
Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris’ lawyers don’t measure success by the hours we bill to our clients. The firm’s success and our lawyers’ compensation are based on results we obtain as a team. There are no bonuses based solely on hours billed. We measure our success by the results we deliver to our clients.
In BigLaw firms, teams are put together based on title and rank within the firm. We don’t assign work-based titles. We assign work based on which lawyer has the best skills to handle each particular situation. We encourage collaboration, rather than considering it a weakness. Some of our lawyers are better “on their feet” in a courtroom than others. Some of our lawyers are better researchers and writers. We identify each lawyer’s strengths and weaknesses and work as a team to bring the best possible approach to representing our clients’ interests.
