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 in 2014.
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 twice 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Why Our Attorneys Chose Rimon
"I was a Partner at Katten before I joined Rimon. Rimon has been a great career choice for me. Rimon is a group highly skilled lawyers in all fields that are part of a full-service firm. Equally important, Rimon lawyers are a team of special people that are cognizant of the day to day challenges lawyers face, be it childcare or elder care, that other law firms unsuccessfully try to address. Rimon puts a premium on taking time to manage your family life while still servicing clients at the highest level. When thinking about joining the firm one colleague told me we actually like each other. It is true. I enjoy spending time with my colleagues both professionally and personally. Rimon is ahead of its time in defining a new law firm model."
"Having been at two very large firms as well as having run my own firm, I was looking for a firm that would give my clients the benefits of a big law firm without the downside. Rimon provides our clients with comprehensive representation by a team of top attorneys without the downside of excessively high legal bills. Rimon is a full-service firm packed with excellent attorneys in fields such as IP, corporate, M&A and tax. This quality team is what my clients need to help their businesses prosper."
"Joining Rimon was truly ideal for me, as the firm emphasizes a work/life balance and encourages us to draw on each other's skill sets to maximize client service. Also, joining Rimon at this time is a unique and exciting opportunity for me in the midst of historic changes in the financial services industry.
Rimon's compensation structure allows lawyers to receive a fixed percentage (which is higher than any law firm that I know of) for the work they generate as well as a fixed fee for hours spent working for other lawyers’ clients. It's clear and transparent."
"I was able to easily transition my Fortune 500 clients to Rimon, and have brought 14 Fortune 100 clients to the firm since joining. Rimon's flexible platform was key in making that happen."
"My clients are very sophisticated and expect the best, so I am very careful about who I trust to work with them. Fortunately, at Rimon, I know I can trust all the members of our team. Over ten Partners in Rimon's team, across five states, two countries, and several practice groups (including litigation, corporate, tax, intellectual property, estate planning, and more) work closely with me to serve my music and entertainment clients. Meanwhile, Rimon's flexible structure allows me to live where I want, and how I want, without sacrificing quality. My clients have been very pleased with my move to Rimon."
"I have become as impressed with the depth of thinking that has gone into building the Rimon team as I have with its capabilities. The sensitivity and responsiveness of Rimon's lawyers to the needs and concerns of startups, as well as to the largest and most sophisticated users of legal services, stems from the core values of excellence, innovation, and community. This resonates well with both the entrepreneurs and investors that are my clients.
Frankly, removing inefficiency and unnecessary expenditures just makes so much sense, not only from a businessman’s perspective but from a client’s as well. That was my aim when I joined Rimon: to remove inefficiencies at work so I wouldn’t have clients stuck with the cost of them. At Rimon, I am able to keep a broad focus without getting involved with the bureaucracy of private practice."
"I joined Rimon because I was looking for ways to further expand my practice and work with an accomplished group of experienced attorneys. Rimon has quickly acquired a strong national reputation for focusing on quality and innovation. These are two key elements that will help my clients get the best legal service possible.
During my time at the firm, I’ve developed strong career links with my Rimon peers – a great mix of business and legal talent. It’s great since we’re all invested in educating each other on the legal issues we come across. We continue to professionally grow as a team."
"I was looking for a better way to maintain and build my niche practice in asset finance when I found Rimon. I knew I needed a cost structure that provided greater value to my clients as well as experienced partners in complementary service areas to meet the needs of my cross-border practice. In addition, I was looking for a firm that placed a low premium on bureaucracy and politics and trusted its partners to grow their own practices. Rimon gives me the flexibility to manage the unpredictable nature of a cross-border practice with the demands of a dual career family. I am now well placed to meet industry needs and excited about the innovative structures Rimon has to offer."
"I am a person who believes everything happens for a reason. After twenty plus years as a transactional tax partner in large firm climates, I loved the practice of law but did not love the politics. Rimon approached me, and I could not believe that a place like this existed that could allow me to pursue the intellectual challenges I love, work with stellar professionals in every discipline, and be a part of a group that works as a whole - not as individual parts. It is a pleasure to be a part of a group that is so forward thinking."
"We jumped at the opportunity to join Rimon. From our first conversation, we knew that we had found a home. Rimon represents the next generation of law firms. Imagine a firm where you can truly offer your clients a variety of flexible billing arrangements, where you can call upon a team of like-minded lawyers across a variety of practice groups to help solve your clients’ toughest problems, and where you have access to a sophisticated platform that allows you to do more for less. This is the Rimon way. Add to that a truly collegial group of lawyers, a professional staff, and an enlightened management team and you have the ideal setting to thrive as a lawyer.”
