LAWYERS WHO CAREĀ®: Our staff and attorneys are deeply involved in charitable organizations and nonprofits in our community.
Verrill Dana is at the sweet spot where small firm atmosphere blends with big firm resources. As one of New England's pre-eminent mid-sized law firms, Verrill Dana offers a collegial environment that encourages collaboration and creativity to solve our clients' legal needs, from the most simple transaction to the most complex project. We're sized to be nimble, responsive and accessible. But there are really three reasons you should consider a career at Verrill Dana: quality of work, quality of place and quality of life.

Quality of work

  • We handle interesting, challenging work on behalf of clients from down the street and around the world
  • We have breadth and depth of practice and credentials that rival the country's largest firms, but with a fraction of the overhead
  • We foster a collaborative approach to our work that is preferred by our clients because it ensures that work is being done by the right person, achieving the best result at the greatest value
  • Meaningful work is done by attorneys early in their careers. Our associates are able to access opportunities for skill-building and professional development that aren't available in larger firms

Quality of place

  • We attract talented attorneys from some of the country's most respected law schools and law firms who enjoy the collegial culture and the accessibility for our clients
  • Many of our clients have been clients for many years, some even for generations. Many of our clients hire us across multiple areas of service and we value our long-term client relationships
  • Our attorneys and staff are passionate about their work and committed to their community
  • We value initiative and involvement in career development
  • We offer cutting edge technology and superior resources in IT, Accounting, HR, Library and Marketing/Business Development

Quality of life

  • Verrill Dana's largest offices are located in Boston, MA, Portland, ME and Westport, CT - vibrant urban centers with thriving business communities, active social and community networks and nationally recognized cultural scenes
  • Work-Life Balance isn't just a catch phrase here. We actually do want our attorneys and staff to be happy people who enjoy their work
  • Our culture is built on policies designed to encourage long-term retention and low attorney turnover
  • We're proud that Verrill Dana ranks 11th in the nation for our percentage of female attorneys, a testament to the success of our efforts to create an equal playing field for all of our attorneys
