Intelligence is always attractive, but “intelligent, personable and ambitious” makes us sit up and take notice. We want, and expect, our associates to grow and develop into the firm’s future leaders. To help them along that path, we strive to offer a positive work environment with opportunities for professional growth and practice development, giving associates significant authority in handling matters as soon as they are ready to assume that responsibility and promoting participation in professional activities and continuing legal education. Our senior attorneys provide mentoring and feedback as much as possible, and (as clichéd as it may sound) the firm truly maintains an “open-door” policy, affording new associates with access to a broad base of expertise and experience.
The best way to learn is by doing, and a Broude Smith clerkship is designed to help you make the transition from law student to lawyer. Clerks are given the opportunity to work side by side with firm attorneys, attending client meetings, closings, depositions and hearings. Each clerk is assigned a mentor who assists with time management issues and navigation of administrative procedures. The mentor also ensures that the summer associate receives timely and constructive feedback on his or her work, setting the stage for a truly productive and rewarding experience. Our goal is to create an environment in which a law student can apply the skills and concepts they have learned in school to real-world practice while getting an accurate feel for life as a lawyer.
Support personnel contribute significantly to the firm’s overall level of success, and we strive to ensure that each of our employees finds professional and personal satisfaction in a pleasant working environment. Broude Smith offers its staff members a high level of responsibility and access to a variety of challenging assignments.
