Career Opportunities for Attorneys
Our firm continually seeks quality attorneys to enhance and expand our practice through measured growth. Whether your interests be in information technology, intellectual property, commercial/corporate, tax, trusts and estates, real estate law or litigation, there are opportunities available to join the firm. We are committed to maintaining our position as a quality independent mid-size firm with high standards for legal work and client service.
We typically hire associates with one to two years' experience at a law firm or after a judicial clerkship. Key qualifications we look for include graduating in the top 15% of your law class, law review and strong writing and oral communications and interpersonal skills.
We do not hire summer associates.
There are many benefits to working here. First, you will be involved in substantial legal matters for clients ranging from multinational corporations to privately held companies to high net worth individuals. Because of our flexible staffing structure, you can be involved in more than one practice group, gaining experience and expanding your horizons in a variety of legal avenues.
You also will have an opportunity to learn from 'lawyers who wrote the book,' as many of our partners are recognized leaders in their practice areas. Given our size, you will work directly with these partners, not simply pass them in the hallways. In addition, our client teams are small enough to provide associates with a genuine opportunity for early client contact and meaningful responsibility. For example, we generally staff litigations and deals with a one partner - one associate team and add additional resources only if the size, complexity or time constraints require it.
Equally important, we provide a comfortable yet professional work environment. With a collegial atmosphere, we offer a warm environment in which to grow professionally and personally. We encourage our attorneys to participate in bar and community organizations as a means to continue personal education and experience and as a resource for professional networking. We also encourage business development by all of our attorneys.
Our firm provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics.
