Law firms can be peculiar work environments. To start with, lawyers tend to be quite intelligent and very independent, and often have very well-developed egos. Add to that mixture that lawyers are professionally trained to argue with each other and usually work in a high-stress environment for multiple clients with competing priorities. Finally, keep in mind that law firms typically operate as partnerships, without the more hierarchical and well-established structure of corporations.
