Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks, P.C.

Our Survey Says

VAULT'S VERDICT:

If you want to do IP work in Boston, Wolf, Greenfield, & Sacks may be one of your best bets. The culture is very pleasant and professional, with no strong divisions between attorneys and staff. Partners and associates have good relationships with each other, although some aspects of firm operations are fairly opaque at the associate level. The firm’s billable hour requirement is 1,800, with an additional 200 non-billable hours required as well. The salary is near-market and bonuses are somewhat below, but when compared to the billable requirement, this is viewed as worth the trade. Work is diverse, substantive, and challenging, and technology is innovative and very enabling of the firm’s hybrid work model. The firm offers many wellness perks, although some attorneys feel they lack the time to take advantage of them. Training is some of the best out there, with the firm offering formal training at least once a week and assigning each associate a formal mentor. Career outlook is another positive, with partnership realistic, counsel positions available for those who don’t wish to be partner, and the firm making an active effort to maintain good relationships with those who exit for in-house or other roles. The firm offers 100 hours of billable credit for pro bono work, although the formal infrastructure to promote and delegate such work is somewhat lacking. Diversity could be better, but the firm does well for its size and is committed to doing better.
