Over the past century, Duane Morris has earned a reputation for being innovative, creative and forward-thinking in both the practice and business of law. Our expansion within the last decade from a regional to a global law firm has strengthened this reputation, and we understand that our success lies in hiring new attorneys and promoting their professional growth.

The lawyers who excel at Duane Morris are talented, energetic attorneys with an entrepreneurial spirit who work together to support our unique culture of inclusiveness, congeniality and consensus. We consider our associates an investment in our future and, as such, are committed to providing them with the necessary tools to develop the skills and knowledge needed to contribute to the firm's continued success.

We invite you to explore what Duane Morris offers its associates, from comprehensive professional development programs to industry-leading support systems.

Duane Morris places a strong emphasis on helping our attorneys manage both their professional and personal lives, regardless of their tenure with the firm. Duane Morris' health and leave benefits program is unilateral - as an associate you will enjoy the same treatment as the most senior partner. Additionally, Duane Morris has distinguished itself from other major firms by its philosophy on the importance of the quality and integrity of relationships among the people of the firm, a philosophy highlighted in a Harvard Business School case study .

The firm's business practices and culture were the subject of a Harvard Business School case study in 2006. The first such study on a major law firm in more than a decade and one of only a handful of law firm case studies in the Harvard Business School curriculum, the study details how we maintained our culture in the face of dramatic change - no matter how much we grow, we continue to place a high value on the diverse viewpoints of our colleagues, and maintain our consensus-based management style.

Duane Morris also understands the importance of developing and maintaining a healthy and productive work environment that balances professional responsibilities with personal obligations. We recognize that providing our attorneys the flexibility and assistance in their personal commitments translates into greater success in their careers and for the firm. We have formal, nationally recognized policies that help to ensure this balance. Duane Morris has been recognized both locally and nationally as a top firm for women and diverse attorneys. Philadelphia Magazine included Duane Morris as the only law firm in its list of the top 20 companies for professional women, and Working Mother recognized Duane Morris as one of the top 50 law firms for women. Our efforts at improving the recruitment of diverse attorneys were noted in the "2005 Vault/MCCA Guide to Law Firm Diversity Programs."

Duane Morris offers associates training. mentoring and practice opportunities that allow them to immediately begin advancing their careers.

Incoming associates participate in an extensive orientation program specifically geared to their needs. Training sessions focus on both substantive and practical skills, and facilitate each associate's transition from an academic environment to the professional workplace. The orientation program also enables new lawyers to meet and learn from more experienced attorneys practicing throughout the firm.

The firm offers a training program that emphasizes the practical application of legal skills while developing core skills. Classes and sessions offered include:

  • emerging developments in corporate, real estate, bankruptcy, tax, environmental, employment and labor law, and the impact of those developments on our clients,
  • trial advocacy,
  • the art of negotiation,
  • professional responsibility,
  • interviewing and listening skills,
  • use of technology in the legal profession,
  • effective writing and research skills,
  • public speaking, and
  • media relations.

Additionally, Duane Morris provides an in-depth strategic business development program for all associate levels, education that few law firms provide. Both partners and associates participate in the professional development program, enabling them to exchange ideas and to enhance their legal and interpersonal skills. Our lawyers also have the opportunity to attend and participate in educational conferences sponsored by bar and other trade associations across the country.

At Duane Morris, we believe a formal training and development program is complemented by a strong commitment on the part of senior lawyers to act as mentors to less experienced attorneys. Each associate is assigned a mentor in his or her practice area soon after arriving at the firm. Together, mentors and associates:

  • prepare professional development plans outlining professional, client development and community involvement goals,
  • review and schedule available Duane Morris training and activities,
  • meet formally and informally on an ongoing basis, and
  • once a year, jointly evaluate the associates' progress, revising and setting new goals for the coming year.

Our associates work with lawyers of diverse backgrounds, levels of experience, talents and interests. As they work together, associates naturally develop close relationships with their mentors and other senior lawyers who are able to guide them on work-related matters, professional activities, community service projects, pro bono opportunities and other extra-curricular activities. Associates have the opportunity to interact with exceptional individuals who have contributed significantly to the firm and the community at large. Many of these individuals are members of the firm's governing board and serve as role models to associates who aspire to their own positions of leadership and service.

At Duane Morris, new associates are assigned to cases and work directly under the supervision of the partners involved. The Duane Morris Pro Bono program, designed to provide free legal services to those least able to afford them, gives associates the opportunity to manage cases early in their careers. Since its inception, associates have gained valuable corporate counseling, immigration and trial experience assisting low-income entrepreneurs, asylum applicants and children. In its inaugural year, an associate received the Duane Morris Pro Bono Award.

Additionally, associates are encouraged to collaborate with partners on articles for legal journals and other publications. Writing articles enhances our lawyers' understanding of the law and helps to advance their stature in the legal and business communities. Our attorneys contribute to a broad range of print and online publications. Our lawyers also participate in seminars and panel presentations for current and prospective clients as well as professional organizations and community groups. Many associates take the opportunity to enhance their public speaking skills by working with communications professionals before their presentations. These activities build confidence and skills critical to our associates' development as effective lawyers.

Understanding the unique attributes diverse attorneys bring to the practice of law, Duane Morris is committed to recruiting, retaining, mentoring and promoting diverse attorneys. Also understanding there are unique issues that affect diverse attorneys, Duane Morris formed the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and Women's Impact Network for Success (WINS) in order to provide forums and activities designed to bring together women and diverse attorneys throughout the firm and a place where experienced attorneys can mentor and enhance new attorneys' development through the exchange of ideas and experiences.

The firm's primary goal in practice support is to enable the legal staff to quickly shift their efforts and valuable time from case administration and document and evidence management to substantive legal analysis, legal strategies and fact finding. Duane Morris garners national recognition for its commitment to practice support. Our Marketing and Business Development Department consistently has been named among the top-marketed firms by American Lawyer Media - taking top honors in 2006. Our season marketing professionals provide marketing and media strategies, client research and analysis, proposal and presentation support, writing services, multimedia and printed collateral development, and client relationship management services.

The firm's Information Services Department of more than 50 professionals is led by the firm's Chief Technology Officer, who was named 2007 IT Director of the Year by Law Technology News. Duane Morris' use of technology has been spotlighted in case studies on the websites of HP, Microsoft and AT&T, and has been written about in various business and technical publications. Additionally, ALM's 2007 Associate Technology Survey ranked Duane Morris in the top 17% of participating firms in terms of the overall quality of the firm's technology, how well associates felt they were trained, their estimation of the firm's technical support and how successfully they thought the firm deployed technology on behalf of its clients.
