How Rimon is disrupting the law firm model →

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.

Team of All-Stars

Rimon's Partners were meticulously drawn from the top ranks of premier law firms, international corporations, and academia. They hold JDs, PhDs, LLMs, and MBAs from elite universities. They have worked on multi-billion dollar deals, have won bet-the-company litigation, and have run universities. Their experience and education ensure our clients receive consistently excellent and comprehensive counsel.

Diversity Policy

At Rimon, we recognize and value the benefits of diversity.  We know that creating an inclusive environment for attorneys and staff leads to a stronger team, and that diverse perspectives and experiences not only enrich our own lives but so often add value to the excellent service we offer to clients.

We strive to recruit, retain, and advance people of diverse backgrounds at all levels of Rimon. The purely objective partner compensation structure, flexibility, and transparency of the Rimon model inherently eliminates many of the barriers that women and minorities face at traditional law firms and allows us to attract top talent regardless of ethnicity, gender, physical disability, family, and socioeconomic background or sexual orientation.

As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we established the Rimon Women’s Forum to support and encourage our women lawyers, many of whom are already trailblazers in their respective industries. Rimon is also a member of the California Minority Counsel Program as a minority-owned law firm.
