Hybrid Law Firm Rimon Opens in New Orleans in Period of Growth
News September 20, 2021
(Reuters) – Rimon isn’t letting up on its growth plans in the U.S. and across the globe, announcing on Friday an office opening in New Orleans and two lawyer recruits to its newly minted Montreal, Canada, outpost.
Rimon, a San Francisco-founded law firm that leverages cloud-based technology and allows its lawyers to work from anywhere, has rapidly expanded in the past two years.
Other hybrid and virtual law firms have also added new lawyers in that time, at least in part due to COVID-19 forcing offices to shutter and some lawyers wanting more flexibility.
The New Orleans outpost brings Rimon’s office count to 45 locations globally. The opening comes on the heels of Rimon’s leap into Frankfurt earlier this month – marking its sixth office in Europe – with former Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner partners.
Rimon has 45 offices across five continents. The firm is widely known as being at the vanguard of legal innovation. The firm has been repeatedly recognized by the Financial Times as one of North America’s most innovative law firms. The firm’s Managing Partners were both named ‘Legal Rebels’ by the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal and have spoken on innovations in the practice of law at Harvard and Stanford Law Schools. Rimon and its lawyers have also received numerous awards for excellence, including from Best Lawyers and Chambers.
