Our Culture


Our culture is a reflection of the legal and professional artistry of each individual who walks through our halls, and it permeates well beyond the walls of our offices.

Cole  Culture


At the end of the day, the thing that differentiates one law firm from another is not tangible. It is not the range of a firm’s legal practices or its geographical and jurisdictional footprint nor is it a matter of attorney headcounts, legal fees or billing arrangements. What truly distinguishes any law firm, and ours in particular, is a carefully cultivated shared sense of purpose, a collective set of shared customs, beliefs and values, and an unwavering dedication to superior client care – in short, culture.

Our culture has been pivotal in our ability to understand our clients’ needs and evolve alongside them. We intentionally build relationships that are rooted in trust, encouragement and expansion – all of which are necessary when nourishing an environment rich in creative lawyering and innovation.


An Inclusive Workplace That Emphasizes Everyone’s own Uniqueness

Our version of diversity and inclusion at Cole Schotz is that all humans, regardless of where they were born, what they look like, or where they started on the socioeconomic ladder, deserve to be valued. We believe that every person matters.
