Not only has Gordon Thomas Honeywell long been recognized among the top law firms in the Pacific Northwest, but we pride ourselves on being a great place to work. The Firm is known for the high-caliber and longevity of our lawyers and staff members. Tenures of over ten years are common and many employees have built a lifetime career with the Firm.
There are many reasons lawyers join Gordon Thomas Honeywell. We attract lawyers who are smart, energetic, and have an entrepreneurial spirit. Our lawyers have the opportunity to be lawyers – to try cases and work with clients and not sit in an office reviewing documents or writing memos. We offer one-on-one coaching and mentoring, and exposure to numerous practice areas and industries. Our structure has unique career and financial opportunities. We support a shorter partnership track. All of our partners have an equal vote and equal financial opportunity. We offer the resources that come with being a large firm, while providing individual opportunity and flexibility. The Puget Sound Business Journal and Super Lawyers magazine have both ranked Gordon Thomas Honeywell among the top law firms in Washington State. Most importantly, we build client relationships that last, based on trust, successful results, and a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses.
The culture at Gordon Thomas Honeywell encourages hard work, mutual respect, excellence, and community involvement. Our community involvement includes leadership roles with and support to over 100 local arts and culture, education, health care, industry, legal, and philanthropic organizations. The Firm’s value of community commitment is repeatedly recognized. The Pierce County Non-Profit Center presented Gordon Thomas Honeywell with the “Excellence in Corporate Community Support Award,” to recognize its broad-based support of non-profits, through pro-bono legal services, volunteerism, direct donations, participation in fund-raisers, and our many members serving on non-profit boards. We have repeatedly received the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association’s “Pro-Bono of the Year” award, which honors a single Tacoma–Pierce County firm for providing free legal services to those in need, and were recognized with this honor in 2007, 2009-2011, and 2013-2015.
More than half of our lawyers are women. For three generations, GTH has led the Puget Sound Community in recruiting, hiring and promoting women in the legal industry.
