What differentiates our law firm from any other?  Ultimately, it is our culture.  At Butzel Long, our values are central to our culture, and these values attract a certain lawyer.  We believe our recruiting efforts are critical to our success and are diligent about accessing talent whose values align with ours.  Do Your Values Match Ours?


Do Your Values Match Ours?

Client Relationships
In an effort to maximize opportunity for the Firm, proactive, timely and effective responses to client needs are essential in meeting and exceeding their expectations.  We must be committed to creating relationships that are mutually beneficial.  Exemplary service from our lawyers is key to maintaining successful client relationships.    

We seek lawyers who inspire, motivate and lead through the successful completion of client matters and contribution of varying skills. Our philosophy of teamwork is characterized by lawyers who develop and sustain cooperative relationships that foster an open exchange of ideas in an atmosphere of honest communication. 

We strongly believe treating others with dignity and respect is the foundation of a cohesive and productive work environment.  We encourage an atmosphere of sharing ideas and utilization of skills that span across practice areas to achieve a common purpose.     

We must demonstrate highly ethical and socially-responsible standards at all times.  Firm leaders are involved in and advocate social responsibility through encouragement and support of participation in civic and community activities.  Performing diligently to accomplish goals, working in an honest and forthright manner and maintaining composure and professionalism at all times are requirements for maintaining the Firm’s high level of integrity, a virtue that should not be compromised. 

We understand, embrace and promote diversity by taking into consideration and appropriately respecting and responding to the needs, feelings and capabilities of diverse people at all levels.    

Our lawyers are called on to make effective decisions using an appropriate blend of analysis, knowledge, experience and judgment.  Applying critical thinking skills when presented with problems or ambiguous situations and demonstrating superior negotiation techniques are also skills that ensure a quality work product, ultimately leading to exemplary client service. 

Our strategic focus is to search for lawyers who are truly dedicated to the needs of our clients and who determine objectives and set priorities accordingly.  Success is due in no small part to an entrepreneurial spirit and internally motivated drive.
