Chambers Associate 2017, based on feedback from our associates, ranked Seward & Kissel #1 in its comparison of Most Satisfied Associates.

With regard to feedback, associates give the Firm top marks.  Chambers Associate described Seward's formula for satisfaction "a no-brainer: associates got a kick out of the work and enjoyed being with their colleagues." 

One associate told Chambers they were, “attracted to a place with a boutique firm feel that still does high-speed work.  I think it's our biggest selling point."

The Firm has a very congenial culture.  As noted by an associate, "we really work closely with partners and everyone is willing to help.  These people have really become my friends." 

 The work was described by an associate as being "a lot of hands-on experience very early on."

Vault's 2017 "Best Law Firms" Rankings, based on feedback from our associates, ranked Seward & Kissel #7 for "Firm Culture."  Here's what our associates had to say:

The job experience has been wonderful—I feel so at home. I get substantive work and everyone is friendly, brilliant, and fun.”

Partners’ doors are always open and we are encouraged to just come by and ask questions we may have. Partners often come to our offices to chat about current events or work related matters. Relations are great, professional and friendly.

In general, associates at all levels have a lot of independence and their opinions are respected, even with respect to the most challenging legal issues.”
