Patterson Belknap looks for intellectually curious, engaging, collaborative people who desire early responsibility and are highly motivated to solve complex legal problems. We hire new associates directly from judicial clerkships or, on occasion, following law school graduation. Please explore further to decide if you are interested in considering us a professional home.
From Vault Guide to Top 100 Law Firms 2016:
“PBWT is a great place . . . with real responsibility from an early point in your career”
From Chambers Associate 2015 – 2016:
Our sources were eager to mention Patterson's commitment to retention. “People always say they came here just intending to stay two or three years and now never want to leave.” They went on to describe the working environment as “un-hierarchical to the extent possible in this kind of law firm," telling us that "people are willing to go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable.”
