What is it like to work here? Our work is demanding, certainly. But we also want it to be a means for our attorneys and staff to attain their personal and professional goals. We put that objective into practice with benefits and policies including the following:
Including medical, dental, retirement plans, 401(k), short- and long-term disability, paid parental leave (18 weeks of maternity and adoption leave and 4 weeks of paternity leave), adoption and surrogacy stipends, and vacation/sick time. We also offer health care benefits and gross-ups to same-sex and opposite-sex domestic partners.
Including reduced-hour, flex-time, and telecommuting arrangements for attorneys. Both women and men and associates and partners take advantage of this benefit.
Women’s Networking Group
Established in 1998, women attorneys plan and host mentoring and networking events that support and encourage women’s personal and professional growth throughout their careers.
Includes parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and prospective parents. We discuss parenting-related topics and provide each other with support. The Group invites parenting experts, doctors, financial planners, social workers, and others to speak on parenting topics and hosts forums for members to share resources, such as babysitter and day care referrals. The Group also sponsors family social events for Schiff Hardin lawyers and clients.
New Moms Group
Discussion and support group for our newest parents.
