Active Teamwork

 

One of Rimon's core values is teamwork. We believe clients receive the best representation when attorneys with the right business and legal expertise work closely together. Our compensation model, technology platform, and firm activities are built with this concept in mind, creating a close-knit team and rewarding collaborations that benefit the client. For this reason, the Financial Times Innovation Report honored Rimon's innovative collaboration model three times.

In addition to bi-monthly attorney video conferences, attorneys utilize private video conferencing, online document collaboration tools, and instant messaging. In between firm meetings, our attorneys log into our vibrant social network where we post updates and questions and even share family photos. Our cloud-based platform helps attorneys stay in touch whether they are down the hall or across the country.

We also believe face-to-face meetings are essential. In addition to meeting regularly in our local offices, we hold firm-wide gatherings at least three a year, along with several regional get-togethers.

Rimon's attorneys work with each other firm-wide and collaborate across practice groups and sectors.

Spherical Structure

Spherical Organizational Structure

Rimon has received international recognition for its spherical organizational structure. It allows for an agile and dynamic team that works closely together to efficiently respond to client needs.

Our experienced partners form the surface of the sphere, working directly with clients without bureaucratic interference. They are fully supported by a close team of associates, Rimon Network, administrative staff, and management.

This model contrasts with the traditional pyramid structure, and offers the following benefits:

No hierarchy among partners.

Unlike in a pyramid model, our attorneys do not have to follow the dictates of superiors who are unfamiliar with their clients. They do not have to feed the top of a pyramid or follow bureaucratic rules. Instead, Rimon attorneys turn their attention to serving clients by working as a team of equals, supported by staff, Rimon Network, and associates. Rimon's management fosters teamwork and excellence instead of getting in the way of client representation.

Compensation aligned with clients' interests.

Our attorneys are not compensated based on their ranking in a hierarchy or relationship with management. Our compensation structure is based purely on work done for our clients. Attorneys are rewarded for bringing in new work and for assisting their peers. This ensures that our attorneys focus on client needs and relationships, rather than firm politics.

Agility.

We recognize that every client has different needs. One size does not fit all. For this reason, our attorneys have the freedom to determine alternative billing structures and tailored representation for our clients.

Consistent excellence.

Since we do not rely on the leveraged model of a pyramid structure, most of our attorneys are partners with years of high-level experience. Our attorneys do not cut their teeth on our clients’ important work. At the same time, our support team ensures clients don't pay partner rates for data entry or basic research. Furthermore, with management working on the day-to-day business issues of the firm, our attorneys can focus on our clients.

Close-knit Team.

The pyramid structure often rewards hoarding work, or working with the most connected partners for political reasons, even if they are not the right ones for the job. 

The Rimon model encourages attorneys to work together as a single, efficient team, in a way that serves the client best. Hierarchy, bureaucracy, and politics do not get in the way.

Stability.

Since our partners work as a team but do not depend on each other for their compensation, Rimon's structure allows for greater stability. Attorneys do not suffer as a result of weak performance in a specific office or sector, nor do they rely on a few rainmakers to keep the firm afloat.

Dynamism.

The flexibility of the spherical structure and Rimon's culture promotes constant dynamism. Freed from the stiff pyramid structure, new ideas can be implemented by those most likely to be successful.
