Perkins Coie Hosts Build A Bike in Seattle, Washington

Build-A-Bike team activity Perkins Coie, a law firm headquartered in Seattle, WA, hosted a Build-A-Bike ® team building event for its newest group of attorneys. The 30 participants attending just graduated or have less than two years of legal experience. Perkins Coie wanted to introduce them to their culture and their commitment to community service initiatives that are so important to the company. The firm has over 900 lawyers in 19 offices across the United States and Asia and it just celebrated its 100th year anniversary last year.

The firm prides itself not only on its strong legal practice but also on its community involvement and its achievement of being listed on Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” for ten consecutive years (2003-2012). It is with a commitment like this that brought the organizers to a Build-A-Bike ® team building event for fun and to give back to the community.

Some of the attorneys had met one another during their time as summer interns, however, not all were summer interns. Also, they came from a variety of different practice groups and US offices so they may not interact with one another on a daily basis. The exercises in the Build a Bike were a perfect way to get the participants interacting and partnering to accomplish the tasks. The problems cannot be solved without the groups working together but they also must go outside of their team as well. This is just how it is in the firm where it is essential for the associates to know their colleagues from across various offices and practice groups, so they can partner with them on future projects. By the end of the event, the new attorneys saw first hand how working together and bridging the gap with other groups is the recipe to success.
