Collora LLP has cultivated from its inception a culture that is distinct within the legal profession. We have also recognized that organizational culture and values play a key part in the success or failure of any firm.
To quote from our business brethren:
“The thing that I have learned as president of IBM is that culture is everything.”
- Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., former CEO of IBM
“If you do not manage your culture, it manages you, and you may not even be aware of the extent to which this is happening.”
- Edgar Schein, professor at MIT Sloan School of Management
Our office design reflects the values of our culture. It is open, uncluttered, contemporary, creative and upbeat. We similarly encourage our lawyers to be open-minded, contemporary and creative in finding solutions to the thorny problems that have often brought clients to our door.
We also strive for an open and upbeat environment that encourages teamwork, not just among the lawyers, but all of our professional staff, recognizing that everyone has a role to play in delivering superior client service.
Our lawyers, in particular, are uncluttered thinkers who don’t obsess over hundreds of tiny legal capillaries. We try to focus on the main artery, the jugular of an issue, and seek a swift and decisive resolution for our clients whenever possible.
As advocates, we rally around our clients and fellow legal professionals. When any of us go to trial for a client, we feel that we are all on trial, and that’s how we like it. We thrive under pressure, and we are willing to take chances. Our firm has often accepted the most difficult of cases, even acting pro bono or as appointed counsel when a defendant is on trial for their life or their freedom.
Our culture is largely a reflection of the hiring standards set by our founders, who have always sought to hire lawyers with:
- exemplary legal skills, reflective of their dedication to excellence;
- strong social skills for effective dealing with clients, judges, juries, and teammates;
- an understanding of the professional obligations of a lawyer - the obligations toward ethical conduct, work for the improvement of bench and bar, and the greater community in which we live; and
- the capacity to keep personal ego subservient to the purpose of the greater good.
