Benefits & Work Life Balance Programs

We also provide a number of benefits, alternative work arrangements and career options to our lawyers to address the challenges of balancing the demands of family and career. These programs aim to provide the support and resources our attorneys need to successfully integrate their work and personal lives. Our comprehensive work life programing includes a wide-range of benefits to assist our lawyers and staff at every stage of their lives including dependent care, elder care, concierge services, financial and physical well-being and personal health advocacy programs.

Alston & Bird consistently receives high marks in surveys for our culture of transparency and collegiality. This is exhibited in numerous ways; our lawyers and staff are on a first-name basis, we have an open door atmosphere, we work closely in teams, and we share our successes with one another. We host social activities at the Firm on a regular basis including welcome breakfasts, weekly lunches and Thursday or Friday social gatherings. And firm management communicates with our associates on a regular basis – and our associates communicate in return - in a variety of ways.

We believe Alston & Bird is unique among large law firms and think you will agree. And we are proud to be recognized by Fortune Magazine as one of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" in America and the first and only law firm to achieve the distinction of being on the list for 23 consecutive years.
