Boutique Business Law: small, business-focused, exceptional.
Choosing to create and be owners in a boutique big law firm has made all the difference to the lawyers at Avisen Legal.
If you feel now is the time to join a law firm where you can be an entrepreneur, consider Avisen Legal. We are a collaborative team of highly experienced lawyers with significant Am Law 200 and in-house experience. Averaging over 23 years of experience, we handle large, complex deals and work together to develop new client relationships.
A Unique Model
We have a flat management structure and keep overhead very reasonable. You probably won’t miss long partner meetings but you will be asked to do your part to run the firm. Sometimes that even includes loading the dishwasher. We keep overhead reasonable by only hiring partner level lawyers and expecting everyone to do their own work or work with other colleagues. We have excellent support with our paralegals and office personnel but you should know how to type and handle your own communications. We utilize the same technology used by larger law firms so we are very effective and efficient without having to bear the cost of research and library staff, marketing staff and more. Our offices are modern and functional, but you won’t find expensive art or marble. We keep our focus on serving our clients and making sure our lawyers are well rewarded and feel a true sense of camaraderie.
We highly value our culture of common sense, commitment and collaboration. We encourage everyone to be open and honest with each other, but in a mutually respectful and caring way. “Brutal honesty” is not allowed. We care about each other and require you to as well.
We are not for everyone. If you think (wrongly) that you need a prestige brand, we are not for you. If you think (wrongly) that you need a secretary and paralegal at your beck and call, we are not for you. If you think (wrongly) that you are better than support personnel or anyone whose practice is smaller than yours, we are most definitely not for you.
