Jenner & Block

Lateral Hires

Jenner & Block continues to grow as a firm, not only from the addition of entry-level associates, but also through regular recruitment of experienced lawyers in all of our office locations.  Lateral hires often choose us because of our entrepreneurial environment, which offers the freedom to grow and succeed; our excellent resources, including our highly credentialed associates; and our collegial and team-focused atmosphere.

We hire lawyers with interesting and varied backgrounds.  Many have completed judicial clerkships or worked for the government.  Others come to us with experience as leaders in public interest organizations or as in-house counsel.  We attract candidates who are looking for:

  • Sophisticated work
  • Top-notch training and professional development
  • A broad, deep and award-winning commitment to pro bono and public service
  • A diverse, collegial work environment
  • Teamwork, collaboration and strategic thinking

Once a lawyer accepts an offer from Jenner & Block, our Lateral Orientation Program helps ensure that they successfully transition to the firm.   We want our lateral associates to hit the ground running, and we know that the first few months are important.  The Lateral Orientation Program ensures that laterals are matched with mentors who can help them quickly integrate.
