Apr 22, 2022

“Blue J gives younger attorneys and associates the chance to spend more time on analysis, more time creating better work product. It’s going to improve your employees’ work-life balance because they’re not spending hours upon hours on tax research. Instead, they can spend more time being mentored by partners and senior leaders.”

– Travis Thompson, Tax and Criminal Law Associate
