The most important thing at Camara & Sibley is delivering excellent legal work. Everything else we do, we do to do that better.
- Collaboration. We are a firm of brilliant individuals who prefer working together. We solicit and respond to changes, comments, and ideas from everyone. Our offices feature living-room couches where we share ideas and try out arguments. Clients get the work of the entire firm.
- First Principles. We approach problems from first principles, not by modifying forms or blindly reusing what has been done before. When we work in an area of law, we drill down until we understand the why, not merely the what. We do not rely on third-party sources or the research of others. And when we do this work, we document it so that the firm's collective knowledge always grows. Real understanding breeds originality and lets us explain complex ideas clearly.
- Big Problems. We look for hard, important problems. Our specialties, like antitrust and intellectual property, are in areas of the law that are important for society, not only for our clients. We believe in the law as a tool for shaping society, for growing businesses, and for helping people achieve great things. We believe that people do their best work when what they are doing is important work.
- People. We believe that smart, hardworking people will do great things when given great things to do. We encourage associates to take the lead on matters early. Our analyst program, in which we hire recent college graduates to handle nonlegal tasks like document collection and review, diligence investigations, tracking down witnesses, and dealing with government offices and the press provides great training and experience for analysts and lets lawyers focus on legal work only.
