Careers - Associates

“We hire each associate with the hope and expectation that he or she will become a partner.” – Mickey Mixson

We are highly selective in our associate hires. New associates usually rank in the top 5 percent of their class at leading law schools, with significant involvement—often leadership positions—in activities such as law review and moot court. In addition, most of our lawyers complete clerkships with federal district or circuit court judges before starting work at the firm.

We consistently attract top graduates because we do not hire laterally (all associates begin at entry level) and we offer meaningful work on high-profile litigation matters from the very outset of your career. Cases are typically handled by a small number of lawyers, requiring associates to assume substantial responsibility at an earlier stage than at other firms.

Professional Development

We devote an unusual amount of time and resources to the professional development of our associates and have found that this investment pays off for the firm and its clients. Our philosophy is simple: The stronger you are, the stronger we are.

Fully funded training and development initiatives include:

We are an equal opportunity employer, and welcome applications without regard to race, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation or national origin.
