Thompson Coburn was named to BTI Consulting Group's Client Service A-Team 2020, the only law firm ranking based on direct, unprompted feedback from corporate counsel.  

Our litigators have handled both the largest and longest jury trials in U.S. history, and our corporate attorneys lead complex transactions for some of the country’s largest corporations. Thompson Coburn attorneys come from diverse backgrounds, including time spent as general counsel and executives for major corporations, elected officials, federal agency officials, U.S. attorneys, and state judges. They are also national leaders in the practice of law: Our attorneys have served as the chair of the 60,000-member ABA Section of Litigation and president of the National Bar Association, the nation's largest network of African American attorneys and judges.

Thompson Coburn invests significant resources to support incoming attorneys and give them the tools they need to serve clients, expand their practices, and pursue leadership opportunities inside and outside of the firm. Our longtime emphasis on mentorship connects attorneys with seasoned practitioners and leaders in the Firm, allowing them to develop meaningful mentorship relationships on a formal or informal basis. Incoming associates also receive hands-on training in the practical aspects of practicing law, as well as extensive networking and business development opportunities.

We want our associates and partners to be successful and confident in all facets of their lives, and we understand that a balanced life of work, family and social activities is essential to everyone's long-term success. We don't just talk life satisfaction, we live it.

Additionally, we place a high priority on pro bono work and community engagement. Our firm encourages all of its lawyers to participate in pro bono activities for which we give credit as for billable work.

For 14 consecutive years, Thompson Coburn has earned a perfect score in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and Best Places to Work Survey. The Firm has also received “Gold Standard Certification” from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum for incorporating women into the highest levels of firm leadership.
