Attorney Benefits


At Robinson Bradshaw, we provide a comprehensive employee benefits package that includes:

Profit-Sharing and 401(k) Plan

All eligible lawyers participate in the firm's qualified profit-sharing plan. For decades, the firm has contributed to each participant’s account an amount equal to 10% of the lawyer's regular cash compensation. These contributions are fully vested immediately. The plan also has a 401(k) feature, and lawyers may make voluntary, pre-tax and after-tax contributions, subject to applicable limits. Eligibility and other details are available upon request.

Moving Expenses

The firm will cover up to $2,000 in approved expenses incurred moving household goods to Charlotte.

Bar Preparation and Examination Fees

The firm covers all reasonable expenses associated with bar preparation courses and bar examination fees.


Medical, dental and pharmacy coverage is provided by the firm’s self-insured plan.

Flexible Spending Account

Our benefit plan allows employees to fund Dependent Care and certain unreimbursed Medical Expenses on a pre-tax basis through payroll deductions.

Life Insurance

Our life insurance coverage begins on the date of hire. Lawyers receive life insurance in the amount of their annual salaries (up to $150,000) at no cost, and may purchase supplemental life coverage up to $500,000 with no health statement (age-based premiums).

Long-Term Disability

Our coverage begins on the date of hire. A benefit of 60% of monthly salary is provided up to $15,000 (offset by social security benefit). There is a 90-day waiting period from the time the disability begins before benefits are paid.

Short-Term Disability

After one year of continuous service, eligible lawyers experiencing a short-term disability may receive salary continuation during the long-term disability plan’s 90-day waiting period.

Parental Leave

Lawyers who have completed one full year of continuous employment are eligible for paid parental leave to care for the attorney's newborn child or newly adopted or foster child.


Lawyers are entitled to three weeks of vacation annually.


The firm provides access to numerous free continuing legal education programs and pays for approved attendance at CLE programs. The North Carolina State Bar requires that each lawyer complete a minimum of 12 hours of CLE per year.

Bar Association Dues

The firm pays the lawyers' dues for membership in the bars and bar associations at the national, state and local levels.
