Kleinbard’s lawyers are smart, hard-working professionals dedicated to client service who also genuinely enjoy working with each other and maintain full and varied lives beyond the Firm’s doors. As part of our efforts to promote a balance between work and our personal lives, we encourage our lawyers to be actively engaged in community service, resulting in many of us taking on leadership roles in nonprofits and other civic groups.
Our Firm is characterized by mutual respect and camaraderie, an approach that benefits our clients as well as our lawyers and staff. Although we demand the highest level of performance in serving our clients, we do so in an informal, supportive non-bureaucratic environment that we think yields the best results for our clients while maximizing the opportunities for professional growth and development. As new practice opportunities arise or areas of the law evolve, we encourage our lawyers to develop the relevant skills and experience needed to practice in those areas.
Our lawyers possess not only the technical skills required to provide high-quality legal services, but also the willingness and know-how to engage directly with our clients as trusted advisors and business counselors. We believe developing long term client relationships and understanding their businesses makes us better, more strategic lawyers and makes the practice of law more fulfilling.
We are committed to developing and maintaining a diverse workforce at Kleinbard at both the professional and administrative levels. We believe that both we and our clients benefit when colleagues from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives contribute to the Firm’s work.
If the opportunity to be a part of a collegial, entrepreneurial law firm appeals to you, we invite you to contact us.
For lawyers at the partner level, we seek first-rate, experienced practitioners with existing client relationships who also have the ability and desire to market the Firm’s practice areas and support our ongoing efforts to develop new clients.
We think Kleinbard offers an especially attractive platform for lateral partner candidates. These lawyers have the opportunity to join like-minded colleagues with large-firm training who want to continue to work on challenging, complex matters but in a smaller, more flexible environment. In addition, a firm of our size means fewer conflict issues and more freedom to develop a practice that aligns with your skills and interests.
For lawyers at the associate level, we seek well-credentialed candidates with preferably at least two years of experience and training with a larger law firm.
For administrative staff, we seek flexible, team-oriented candidates who take ownership of their areas of responsibility. Unlike many law firms, we offer our support staff opportunities for career advancement.
To inquire about non-attorney employment opportunities or other administrative matters at Kleinbard, please contact our Director of Administration, Mary E. Zove at email@example.com or 215.568.2000.
