Hendricks and Bivens offers an exciting and challenging career for attorneys of
all ages and experience. Our complex and diverse practice affords our attorneys
with the opportunity to practice in various types of litigation and to represent
an array of clients as both plaintiffs and defendants. We typically hire attorneys
as summer associates with the goal of building our firm from the ground up. For
information about our summer associate program, please look at our Summer
Associate Program link. The firm also hires experienced attorneys at both
the associate and member level from time to time when we have a need to expand
and when the applicant has demonstrated exceptional performance in his or her
legal career. |
The firm has three levels of employment for attorneys: associates; non-equity
members; and shareholders. Although no set timetable exists for advancement to
shareholder, associates historically have been considered for non-equity membership
after 6-8 years of practice. Judicial clerkships are not considered practice,
although salary consideration is given for time spent up to a year as a judicial
clerk after graduation. Non-equity members can expect to be considered for shareholder
status after two years. Non-equity members participate in firm management but
do not share in profits beyond discretionary bonuses.
Firm benefits for associate attorneys include full medical, dental and vision
coverage for the attorney and his/her dependents; a 401(k) retirement plan in
which the firm matches employee contributions and a profit-sharing plan that vests
at the rate of 20% per year; covered parking; payment of professional dues and
CLE costs; group life and long-term disability plans; and a Section 125 flexible
spending plan, which allows use of pre-tax dollars to pay child care and uncovered
medical expenses. Non-equity members also receive a cell phone allowance; reserved
parking; and personal, portable long-term disability insurance.
Associate compensation is based on years of practice, with credit for judicial
clerkships. Associates who bill at least 1950 hours are eligible for a discretionary
year-end bonus. Non-equity members' compensation is decided by a compensation
committee that looks at personal productivity and business credits (for generation
and/or management of cases) as the principal factors in deciding compensation.
The firm is currently looking to hire one lawyer with 15-20 years experience and
one lawyer with 4-6 years experience in complex civil litigation. Applicants must
have a strong academic record and excellent writing skills.
interested in applying for these positions should send a resume, law school transcript
and writing sample to the attention of Paul Stoller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
