Hooper, Lundy & Bookman

Our Survey Says

VAULT’S VERDICT:

If you’re interested in a mostly remote practice focused on healthcare law, Hooper Lundy pairs that with a collegial and highly collaborative culture. Partners are kind, invested in associate success, and transparent about the state of the firm, with a quarterly call to update all attorneys on finances, firm direction, and the market. The billable hour requirement is 1,900, with associates having plenty of work without feeling overwhelmed. The firm’s base salary is a little below BigLaw market rates, but there are bonuses available for high billers that move compensation closer to market. The work is highly technical and substantive, with associates regularly doing work above their experience level (but provided with support where they need it). Technology is solid and remote work is seamless, with associates being provided a tech stipend to set up their home offices. The firm has several wellness initiatives, but most associates feel the flexible, balanced culture is more useful on that front anyway. Formal training is not a strong point, but the firm’s mentorship program and the availability of organic mentors are highly valued by associates as they learn their trade. Partnership is realistic for those who want it, and the specialized healthcare skillset is in high demand for outside roles, but the long-term viability of non-partner counsel roles is unclear. The firm allows 100 hours of pro bono work to count toward the billable hour requirement, and associates are very satisfied with the firm’s diversity commitment—50 hours of billable credit is offered for diversity-related work and activities.
