About VW

At Vela Wood, we are constantly trying to reinvent what it means to practice law. We explore every avenue to make this firm a better place – for our team, for our clients, and for our communities.

At Vela Wood, we don’t believe in work-life balance. There’s just life. We encourage employees to focus on their lives, and we hope VW becomes an important part of them. Learn more about our team through our annual reports!
