Brutzkus Gubner promotes team spirit and camaraderie through its support of numerous charitable and civic activities in which teams and groups of employees participate, including: volunteering to support the Manna Food Bank of Conejo Valley, presenting an event to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, volunteering to assemble food kits for senior citizens at Los Angeles Regional Bank, volunteering with Ronald McDonald House, teaming with Operation Gratitude for a “Build a Bear” event, and participating in Habitat For Humanity build days.
The high regard in which the firm is held by competitor colleagues and peers has garnered it numerous firm and individual partner awards from organizations such as Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers. Employees are justifiably proud to be associated with the firm. Brutzkus Gubner prides itself on being a lifestyle firm. “Work Hard and Play Hard” is the philosophy. The firm does not have a billable hours requirement for attorneys and generally does not require work on the weekends. As a matter of fact, Brutzkus Gubner discourages working over the weekends, so that employees can spend time with their families. Work-life balance is very important to the firm. Telecommuting and flexible schedules are a very important part of the firm’s culture.
