Life at Harness Dickey

We represent some of the most sophisticated corporations in the world… and so will you.

Dedication to Outstanding Service

Harness Dickey represents an extensive range of clients, including four of the “top ten” Fortune Magazine companies, as well as independent inventors and start-ups. Firm attorneys and staff continuously strive to provide extraordinary service to clients. Our professionals are encouraged to excel at professional development, honing project management skills and building interpersonal relationships.

Flexible Lifestyle

With a reasonable annual billing goal, we pride ourselves on being balanced employers, affording the time required to deliver superior service to our clients while offering ample opportunity to pursue goals and activities outside of the office. Harness Dickey professionals work hard, but also value time for family, friends, personal interests, community involvement and ongoing professional education.

Camaraderie & Teamwork

Maintaining strong relationships within our Firm is a high priority. We nurture and encourage personal responsibility, reliability, self-motivation, professional development, entrepreneurship, self-confidence and strong client relationships. We also believe that steadfast and positive internal relationships allow for cohesion and enhanced teamwork, resulting in a welcoming environment with opportunities that support not only the delivery of superior legal counsel, but also notable service and diverse ideas.

To encourage relationship building and teamwork, each year the Firm participates in several events for attorneys and staff, including an attorney retreat, a family summer picnic and holiday parties. Each event offers an excellent opportunity to further develop personal relationships with colleagues, as well as to enhance cross-office camaraderie.

Commitment to Diversity

We are committed to fostering and maintaining an inclusive culture where color, age, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, marital and family status are understood, respected, valued and accepted. Our leadership seeks to hire, retain and promote minority and female attorneys and staff. We develop and maintain a workforce that reflects the diversity of our employees, clients and the communities in which we live and work.

Our Diversity Committee seeks out opportunities to value and highlight the differences among our attorneys and staff. The Diversity Committee strives to set new benchmarks for expanding cultural norms and perceptions. With a focus on action, the Diversity Committee ensures the development of a continued roadmap of supportive initiatives that encourage distinction in everything we do.

In addition, we actively participate in organizations that promote and support diversity. A sampling of organizations in which we are involved, support and/or participate in and with include Managing IP, Top Women in IP; Lawyers of Color; Women’s Lawyers Association; Korea Semiconductor Industry Association; and the Asian American Law Student Association. We sponsor women focused programs for the American Intellectual Property Law Association and the Intellectual Property Owners Association. We also support the Marie L. Nash Memorial Scholarship Fund, which recognizes scholastic achievements of female graduate students in the School of Business Administration.
