Robinson+Cole strives to make the law work for our clients. Our geographic reach meets the regional, national, and global nature of their operations. Our accessible partners, service plans tailored to each client's specific needs, and electronic communications strategiesall help us manage our clients' legal issues more effectively. At the same time, we understand quality and value. In fact, Robinson+Cole is the first law firm to win the Connecticut Innovation Prize for aligning Malcolm Baldrige principles toward performance excellence: for our partnering efforts that provide legal solutions to meet clients' business goals and for our precedent-setting web capabilities. In a 2001 survey, our clients responded that they were extremely satisfied with our quality of service and found us highly responsive to their interests. Our lawyers serve institutional and industrial clients in areas such as e-commerce, intellectual property, utilities, environmental, land use, real estate development, corporate, mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, contracts, tax, financial services, and entrepreneurial business. Our focus on quality, innovation and exceptional service applies to our nearly 200 lawyers and our 225 nonlegal professional staff. We take pride that, by working together, we continue to fashion responsive solutions that help our clients achieve their objectives.
