About Us

Values

Decency, honesty, judgment. The values that define us as a law firm are the reason our clients trust us and choose us time and time again. We don't compromise our values and our clients don't compromise on quality.

At Verrill, our values are reflected in everything we do, from serving our clients and understanding their businesses, to empowering our employees and recruiting new talent. We embrace the differences that exist between our offices, our practice groups, and the individuals within the firm; the commitment we share to our core values unites us and guides our decision-making every day.

Our values guide how we interact with each other and our environment: our practices, policies and procedures foster a diverse, inclusive, and healthy workplace. We ensure we are treating our colleagues with respect and kindness. We engage in sustainable practices to reduce the footprint we leave on our environment. We serve the communities in which we live and work through volunteering, charitable giving, and pro bono legal service. 

Our values guide how we interact with our clients: we engage in training and continuing education to ensure we deliver the best legal counsel. We are accessible in the ways most practical and convenient for our clients. We are nimble and adaptable, able to accommodate changing needs and expectations. We invest in leading-edge technologies that amplify and expand the efficiency with which we operate and increase the value we can deliver to clients. We are dedicated to nurturing long-lasting relationships with our clients. 

Our values guide how we cultivate our firm's culture: we recognize and appreciate the contributions of each member of our firm. Every person here has the potential for excellence, and we want everyone to seek that level of accomplishment. We recognize that change is how we get better; we constantly evaluate the areas and ways in which we can improve.
