Taft. It is one simple word which is the iconic name of an historic political and legal family and represents over 130 years as a venerable law firm. But, today we are a lot more than a firm with an outstanding heritage. Taft is a modern, progressive firm which is the trusted advisor to many successful clients and an employer of choice in each of our major markets.
To be the employer of choice in each of our markets, we maintain a highly respectful, transparent workplace culture which fosters creativity, teamwork, inclusion and diversity, and service to our clients and communities. We couple that culture with a play to win, client-first mindset where we reward lawyers who listen to and understand their clients’ goals and then think creatively and aggressively to advance those goals and the client’s ultimate success.
Deeply embedded in the culture of Taft is the significant investment we make in the communities where we live and practice. Taft lawyers contribute substantial time and resources to many charitable and community organizations and activities. We also do meaningful pro bono work for those in need. As an essential part of our culture, Taft celebrates and provides time and dollars to Taft professionals who support charities, give back to their communities, or do pro bono work. Why? Because Taft and its professionals are blessed to have the means to help others who are less fortunate. Giving back is a concept which is part of the fabric of who we are, and we want to make a meaningful and positive difference in our communities.
Finally, Taft prides itself on being different from other firms. Those differences primarily exist in Taft’s outstanding workplace culture, its obsessive client-first mentality and service, and its approach to leadership. We believe we are the only firm of our size and scale which does not have a physical headquarters or “mothership.” To the contrary, we take pride in having an empowered, geographically dispersed management team composed of leaders from every one of our major markets and practice groups. Taft has a servant leadership model, and we work collaboratively to deliver the full breadth of the Taft toolbox throughout the Taft footprint to obtain the very best and most efficient results for all of our clients.
At Taft, we look forward to delivering results for our clients, communities and each other. After 130 years, our journey has just begun.
