Hiring Criteria

The firm actively seeks attorney candidates through its Summer Associate Program and in the recruitment of third year law students. We also place a strong emphasis on recruiting highly qualified lateral candidates with defined areas of substantive experience. In addition, we regularly interview candidates with post-law school clerkship experience. We are eager to meet enthusiastic, accomplished individuals looking for a true balance of challenging legal work and quality of life.

We are interested in quality candidates who possess excellent academic credentials and relevant experience.
