About Us: Platt Cheema Richmond
Platt Cheema Richmond PLLC is a successful and rapidly growing law boutique with offices in Dallas and Houston, Texas. Founded by entrepreneurs who previously worked in large, national law firms, PCR is dedicated to helping other entrepreneurs and businesses navigate the complexities of commercial real estate deals, corporate transactions, investment funds, tax planning, business litigation, employment law, bankruptcy, and intellectual property.
A Real Path to Partnership
We hire Associates with the belief that each one can become a partner of the firm if they so desire. To become a successful equity partner, you need to have the support of the right platform, tools, and experience. We provide guidance and feedback to help you along the path.
Training & Experience
PCR offers training opportunities on the best practices in law and business. We provide business development training and give every Associate a yearly business development stipend. Our litigators have significant involvement in all aspects of litigation, including outcomes, determinative and leadership tasks, e.g., taking and defending depositions, arguing dispositive motions, and leading settlement negotiations. On the transaction side of the house, our Associates have opportunities to lead deals and serve as the main point of contact for clients.
Low Billable Requirements
We have an efficient and effective business model. We don’t carry the overhead larger firms carry so we can hit our margins without demanding long hours. PCR Associates have a 1,700 billable hour requirement. A structured bonus program kicks in at 1,750 hours. We give credit for business development time.
We work as a team, so partners share originations and client management opportunities. Associates at the firm can receive origination credit on matters they bring to the firm, and on matters in which they are vital to the service levels provided.
Our professionals honor their commitments, so we don’t track vacation time. We don’t require face time in the office. We offer permanent and hoteling offices, and the ability to work remotely.
Diversity & Opportunity
PCR is a meritocracy and takes pride in the working environment we’ve created. We attract and support talented professionals from all backgrounds and many different communities.
