Work/Life Balance

Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr's Flex Time Policy

Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr recognizes that its attorneys have lives outside of the law firm. To support these outside responsibilities and interests, the Firm offers its attorneys a progressive Flexible Working Arrangement policy, one that enables attorneys to work flexible hours while still remaining committed professionals. The policy is designed to take the secrecy out of flexibility by providing clear and informative guidance on matters such as eligibility, duration, billable and non-billable hours commitments, compensation, advancement, and expectations of supervising attorneys and participants.

Pursuant to the policy, attorneys with at least two years of legal experience may submit a flexible working arrangement proposal to their Department Chair. The policy enables attorneys to work part-time, telecommute or otherwise work from outside the office on a regular basis provided the attorney can demonstrate an ability to respond to clients and other attorneys during out-of-office hours. In addition, participants are encouraged to establish and maintain a regular schedule of in and out-of-office hours and are expected to regularly participate in Firm activities. While there is no minimum or maximum duration for a flexible working arrangement, plans are approved for one-year periods.

By working to create flexible working arrangements that best meet the needs of the individual attorney, the Firm and our clients, Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr is dedicated to helping its attorneys develop and achieve a healthy work/life balance.
