Cohen Ziffer is a relative newcomer as a firm, bringing insurance recovery and commercial litigation expertise together in a powerhouse boutique. The firm has talked a lot about creating economic opportunity for female lawyers — and it’s putting its money where its mouth is.
After amassing an office of 26 lawyers, more than double their starting 12, they’re still looking for some of the best to join their ranks. And based off their bonus scale, the lawyers brought in to the fold are compensated handsomely.
For many who decide to work a job that fosters diversity and inclusion, they often have to deal with conditions where they are underpaid or can get lost in too many people doing what a small group could do better. Considering that this firm has not yet had its first anniversary, it’s doing a damn good job of keeping the good without the bad.
