Best biglaw firm you could work for.

Associate (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsTop practice in the country for corporate law for tech companies. Partners are supportive and friendly--no one yells at you, partners seem to actually care about your career development and overall well-being. Associates are treated better at Fenwick than at any other firm I've heard of.

ConsIt's still a law firm, so there will be long hours and the work can be monotonous. As an attorney, there isn't great 24 hour support staff coverage. At other firms I've heard you always have paralegals and assistants to help you out at all hours. This is sort of true at Fenwick, but the staff that's around overnight is minimal, so they're not always available to help you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting. They are very concerned about maintain their status of "one of the best places to work", but fall short.

    I have been working at Fenwick & West full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: Some really great people here. Cons: Still very hierarchal in nature (what can you say, it's a law firm!). Great… Advice to Senior Management: None for staff. Just come do you job. More
