Armstrong Teasdale was ahead of other St. Louis law firms eight years ago when it switched to a merit-based compensation program from lock-step compensation.
We were the first St. Louis law firm to form a social media practice, which helps clients maximize the benefits of using social media sites while minimizing the risks.
Our program providing support to women lawyers was the first in this region when it was launched by management in 1998. It has served as a model for other firms in our area. Today, two of Armstrong Teasdale’s five practice group leaders are women, as is our general counsel and Diversity Committee chair.

A high grade point average is great, but qualities like passion, curiosity, approachability and willingness to be coached are additional traits that we've found increase odds of a successful and gratifying legal practice.
Our associate summer program gives you the chance to use what you've learned but pushes and stretches you - all the while you're getting real law practice experience.
Don't worry about being stuck in the library or a file room for the summer. For several weeks, you'll be guided by a mentor and advisor and treated as a professional. You'll work with experienced attorneys on challenging matters. Every three to four weeks, you'll be assigned to a different practice group to expand your perspective and provide a broader experience. If you have a specific area of interest, we'll give you plenty of time to explore it.
You'll enjoy a full slate of planned activities that allow you to get to know our attorneys and the other summer associates in casual settings. Special seminars to teach soft skills, the business of law firms and trends in the legal profession are part of the summer curriculum.
