Are you an established lawyer wanting to bring your practice to a law firm that is energized and positioned for growth?
The firm is particularly well-situated to integrate a lawyer’s existing practice into the practice group format. Providing access to a significant client base creates unique opportunities to cross-sell the lateral lawyer’s skills and experience to the firm’s existing clients. Additionally, the firm has support staff capable of implementing subject matter newsletters, educational seminars and other means of communicating the lateral lawyer’s areas of practice to potential clients. The firm’s lawyers are regularly asked to be speakers by all of the major educational seminar companies in the Midwest.
The firm’s compensation package for lateral lawyers involves a component that financially awards the lateral lawyer for new clients brought to the firm irrespective who works the hours.
Are you a law student looking for a unique, hands-on experience, rather than a summer spent preparing legal research memoranda?
The firm is committed to mentorship of law clerks by hands-on experiences. Law Clerks immediately become an integral part of the firm’s plan for growth and success. Upon admission, new lawyers are assigned to various practice groups where they participate with more senior lawyers and paralegals in all aspects of the practice. New lawyers are never pigeonholed into performing one or two functions involving a limited area of law.
Many of the senior lawyers of the firm have companion careers as teachers; therefore, the ability to effectively mentor new lawyers is an attribute of the firm that many firms do not possess. It is a common experience for new lawyers to meet with clients, take depositions and participate in mediations, hearings or trials in the first year of practice. Additionally, new lawyers typically make presentations on practice group subject matters to client gatherings and before industry groups throughout Iowa and Nebraska.
