What Our People Say

"I joined Perkins Coie for two primary reasons: its clients and its people. In my first few months at the firm, I have worked on cutting-edge privacy issues for some of the world’s most innovative companies. Along the way, I have worked with colleagues who are not just high-quality attorneys, but also thoughtful, high-quality people."

Justin Potesta, Privacy & Data Security, Dallas

"I chose to be a part of Perkins Coie largely due to the culture. I was lucky in that a trusted friend happens to be a Perkins Coie alum. He described the firm as a place where the people are caring and the firm management works diligently to be transparent, fair, and team-oriented.  Since joining Perkins Coie, I’ve found my friend’s description of this firm to be very accurate."

Firm Culture and Overview

We believe that diversity of thought and experience will enrich our dynamic work atmosphere. We have created a company culture that is based on collaboration, devotion to serving our clients and mutual respect. New employees are integrated into the firm through our extensive orientation, new user training and mentorship programs. We are committed to a fair and equitable workplace where each person is a valued member of the team.

Perkins Coie is highly rated for the quality of its client service. This strength stems from two key factors: a strong emphasis on service that starts at the top of the firm and permeates throughout, and an extremely collegial culture that emphasizes collaboration in support of client needs.
