An Insider's view of Bridge Legal

What are some social events your company does?

My first day I was nervous to underdress so I wore a neck tie. Now every week, much of our team dresses up for Tie Tuesday, with some even wearing full-suits! Our CEO even brought a few ties in to contribute to the tie-libary (a.k.a. the tie-bary). It's so exciting to see so many coworkers participate whether it's once a month or every single week!
