Benefits & Recognition

Benefits

We have long recognized that Verrill Dana's success is dependent on our ability to find and retain the very best people. We realize that a challenging professional environment is only part of the equation. A supportive community, sensitive employment policies and comprehensive benefits programs ensure that our attorneys and staff can find a rewarding and challenging career at Verrill Dana.

In addition to a full range of employee benefits, we offer the following programs to make achieving the right work/life balance seem a lot less like "work."
 
  • Flexible work schedules, including reduced-hours arrangements;
  • Paid time off;
  • Domestic partner benefits;
  • Employee Assistance Plan;
  • Associate Leave Policy (including maternity and paternity leave)
  • Group rates for gym memberships

Verrill Dana values collegiality and interaction among our staff and attorneys. Our intranet and other internal communications keep everyone in touch with what is happening in the firm, including birthdays, employment anniversaries, upcoming events and training classes, as well as individual and firm achievements.

Recognition

Star Cards
We recognize members of our staff who go above and beyond with Star Cards - we hold monthly drawings for gift cards and all star card recipients are recognized on our intranet.

Staff Appreciation
Our annual Staff Appreciation and Recognition Evening is a gala event at which we formally thank the members of the firm's staff for their many contributions to the firm and to our clients. We formally recognize length of service (5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years and more!) as well as welcome the newest members of our staff. The highlight of the evening is the presentation of the annual Staff Excellence Award, affectionately referred to as "The Byron" (after our founder, Byron D. Verrill).

Through each of these and many other less formal ways, we try to say "thank-you" to the members of our staff for all they do every day.
