There are many reasons why lateral attorneys, both associates and partners, are drawn to Shook, Hardy & Bacon. For example, the firm's associate training and professional development program is second-to-none. Lateral partners join colleagues who are dedicated to the highest ideals of their profession. SHB provides a support infrastructure that is extensive, thorough and professional and that frees attorneys to concentrate on client matters rather than support issues.
If you are an associate who is determined to succeed and wants to work with others who demonstrate the same high level of personal and professional commitment, SHB may be the place for you. If you are an established attorney with a solid core of clients who would benefit from the firm's support services and other practice areas, we invite you to take a closer look at us.
SHB's interest in its attorneys, however, extends beyond professional credentials and successes. It is interested in the complete person and what that person contributes to her or his family, community and civic/professional organizations. Each attorney must find her or his own proper balance of work, family and community. The firm's understanding of and support for this issue is just one of the reasons why working at SHB is so rewarding.
