Sutherland’s commitment to excellence on all fronts is unwavering, be it client service, hiring the best and the brightest, or further developing our talent. Webster’s dictionary defines excellence as “the quality or state of excelling—to be greater than or to surpass or do better than others.”
The core of our professional philosophy is straightforward: unfaltering excellence in client service to both external and internal clients. We take pride in exceeding our clients’ expectations. This goal is achieved only with the support and talent of a highly skilled, dedicated paralegal and administrative team. Clients routinely thank us for our extraordinary efforts, and we take great pride in these compliments.
Sutherland is a place where respect for others is a given. Creativity is encouraged, contributions are recognized, and opportunities to learn and grow are abundant. Our environment is fast-paced, yet congenial. Some describe our culture as family-like, for firm leaders and management truly care about each person.
We are committed to hiring the best personnel and helping each person succeed and develop. We offer extensive professional development opportunities and benefits to support work and personal lives. We encourage our employees to give back to their communities and to participate in myriad community service events we sponsor and support. As a result, we have impressive employee loyalty and an outstanding track record of employee retention. For more than 80 years we have been successful in attracting and retaining exceptional talent, and we are committed to continuing this tradition.
