Opportunity to Join Premier Practices
McDowell Hetherington offers new and experienced lawyers interesting work, competitive compensation, and the opportunity to grow professionally as part of a dynamic team. We are one of the nation’s leading trial firms. We handle cases in state and federal courts across the country in virtually every area of commercial law. We are known for our trial and litigation capabilities and our dedication to our clients. We are regularly called upon to handle high stakes litigation for Fortune 500 companies. But, we approach every case, regardless of size, with the same commitment to excellence.
We offer competitive salary and bonus opportunities. And, we believe that top performers should be rewarded. So, our approach to compensation is merit-based, not lockstep. We also provide an excellent range of benefits.
Entrepreneurial and Independent Spirit
We value entrepreneurship in the practice of law. Partners at the firm have built thriving practices in a number of areas and are regarded as leaders in their fields. New lawyers are encouraged to think about their future and are given support to build a practice over time. We want attorneys who will assume responsibility early in their careers and will seek to learn and develop — not only as lawyers, but as future leaders of the firm.
Commitment to Diversity
We value the diversity of our people and have made a conscious effort to create an open and supportive environment where everyone can thrive. The firm recognizes that the practice of law and the quality of firm life are enlivened and strengthened by people from different backgrounds.
