Like most lawyers at most firms, we work hard.
But we use our time differently. At Goodwin, associates and partners are encouraged to explore a broad range of challenging legal issues through casework, professional development, training programs, and pro bono endeavors. We make a point of collaborating with some very interesting people, many of whom are not lawyers. For example, we joined with leaders from Harvard Business School to create leadership training programs for many stages of your career.
What kind of work do you want to do?
Our interactive assignment process allows associates to request a project, a person, or a specific type of case or transaction. You can invest time and energy in matters that engage and inspire you and your colleagues. We’ve found this approach makes for happier, smarter lawyers who do a better job for our clients. You’ll notice our attorneys are in the highest national ranks in several practice areas. If this sounds like the sort of firm where you want to work, we'd like to hear from you.
Is this the right move?
Moving to a new firm is a calculated risk. If you’re comparing Goodwin to other firms, consider this: we’re expanding our practice across an ever-broader global platform. We want you to feel comfortable here, so we’ve created some formal and informal programs to help make your transition to Goodwin as seamless as possible.
