Hear what some of our attorneys have to say:
“The firm’s response to COVID-19 really highlighted the ways in which Schwabe is different. The firm and our industry groups have done so much to keep all of us—and our clients—connected. Our groups devote a lot of time to not only client service, but also to delivering useful content to and strengthening ties with the industries we serve. And we all do our best to check in on one another—people’s individual needs and experiences in quarantine vary greatly, and we all support one another.
Schwabe is a collegial group. People are bright and talented but also a pleasure to work with. Everyone is approachable.
Schwabe is simply a friendly and enjoyable place to work. ”
—Brendan Crowley, Portland, Real Estate and Construction Attorney and Shareholder
“Schwabe is a place where folks have a mind-set of support and collaboration. This holds true for all lawyers and staff, including the most senior and long-standing shareholders to junior associates to a mighty team of marketers and other professionals providing support. People listen to each other and are open to new ideas and innovation. The environment here is one of enthusiasm and team-work. A great place.”
—Bill Abrams, Seattle, Technology Attorney and Shareholder
“I could not be happier having joined Schwabe. The firm has exceptional lawyers, a truly collegial and collaborative environment, and fosters a culture that values the contributions of everyone in the organization. I am continually impressed with my colleagues and proud to be a part of this firm.”
—Russ Roberson, Seattle, Real Estate and Construction Attorney and Shareholder
“Oftentimes, the pathways to a large firm like Schwabe are not as open as they could be or should be for students who come from different backgrounds. We’re trying to open up the breadth of the pool and do that in a very purposeful way.”
—Graciela Gomez Cowger, Schwabe CEO
