Maintaining a Work/Life Balance
Who wants all work and no play? At Teacher Stern, you’ll be able to maintain a sensible balance between work and life outside the office – a factor that many law firms claim but few actually deliver. We encourage and provide an active social network for our employees including sports, regular social events, summer parties, Christmas parties and participation in various charitable events.
