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 2018 Best Law Firms Rankings, based on associate feedback, ranked Seward & Kissel #19 for “Summer Associate Program that Best Prepares for Practice” and #23 for “Best Overall Summer Program.” Here’s what associates had to say:

“Everyone is extremely down to earth and makes you feel comfortable asking questions. Partners will take the time to explain something to you rather than just give you an assignment and expect you to figure it out.”

“The partners in our group care about associate career development.”

“There is a tremendous amount of informal training, since partners make themselves available for questions, discussions and calls with associates. Doors are always open and partners make it known that they are available to help. The firm also conducts periodic CLE’s on topics relevant to associates.”

“I think partnership is realistic for a number of associates in our group, and to the extent it’s not, partners have historically helped outgoing associates with job placement.”
