The Sidebar
The Sidebar is McLane Middleton's casual break and work space.  It's a fun place for colleagues to gather and is designed to foster a collaborative work environment.

Children's Holiday Party
Every December, we hold a holiday party for the children of the firm. With visits from favorite cartoon characters, arts and crafts, local musicians, and food, the firm is transformed into a kid's paradise.

Firm Annual Holiday Party
Our team gathers together at the beginning of every December for an evening of dinner and socializing in celebration of the holiday season.

This outing is a colleague favorite. McLane Middleton takes over a bowling alley for a night of "non-competitive” fun.

The Attorney Retreat is a time to reflect on McLane Middleton’s strategic and financial growth, and to generally get to know one another better.

McLane Middleton Softball Team
The McLane Middleton softball team assembles every spring and competes against local law firms and businesses throughout the summer.
