FlexWork Program

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion means that we also support the differences in work and life styles that our attorneys bring with them to Goodwin. The firm recognizes that some of our attorneys may have personal commitments outside of work that cause them to seek non-traditional or reduced-time schedules. We created a flexible work program called “FlexWork” to support these attorneys. Nearly 10% of Goodwin attorneys are on formal FlexWork arrangements, and many other attorneys work flexibly on an informal basis.
