The Ricketts Case Culture

At Ricketts Case, you will find a firm with open doors and open minds that are continually open to change.

Our clients deserve the best ideas and most engaged, focused lawyers. We have built a work environment that is energized, fluid, and informal.

Our most critical asset is our team. We recruit highly talented professionals who bring a wide combination of skills, experience, and diversity to their work, which results in a working atmosphere that is supportive and intellectually stimulating. Our team is continually learning from and challenging each other. Individuals are encouraged to exercise their intellectual curiosity–and draw upon the support and experience base we provide–to reach their highest professional potential.

Outside of the workday, we participate in a number of firm-wide social activities. These social activities include trips to Giants, Diamondbacks, and Padres games, concerts, shows, happy hours, and dinners. These provide opportunities for our team to get together outside of work and to interact with others that they may not work with on a day-to-day basis.
