“Cooley provides great flexibility and support for its attorneys and staff. There is a ‘Cooley-way’ which emphasizes collaboration, respect for others (and their families and commitments) and professionalism. Law firms can be extreme places, but much of the behavior that is tolerated and considered normal at other law firms (e.g. yelling at staff and associates, blaming others for mistakes rather than trying collaboratively to fix them, requiring associates to cancel vacations and family commitments) is not tolerated at Cooley,” says one employee.
