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.
We provide more than just legal counsel – we are trusted advisors and business counselors to our clients.
Our attorneys possess not only the technical skills required to provide high-quality legal services, but also the willingness and know-how to build long-term client relationships. Many of the Firm’s clients have been with the Firm for more than a decade.
We believe both the Firm and clients see the benefit from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Maintaining a diverse workforce is a priority at both the professional and administrative levels. The diversity of our Firm is demonstrated in both our multigenerational workforce as well as the varied professional experiences of our attorneys.
We hire top-tier, experienced practitioners with existing client relationships who have the ability and desire to support the Firm’s ongoing business development efforts.
Our Firm offers an especially attractive platform for lateral partner candidates. These lawyers have the opportunity to join like-minded colleagues with large firm experience who enjoy working on challenging, complex matters but are interested 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.
