Fox Swibel’s Hiring Philosophy
We are committed to hiring and retaining exceptional legal talent allowing us to provide our clients with the very best in legal services. We are deliberate in our hiring practices to ensure growth never compromises our core values. It is this philosophy that has enabled us to thrive no matter the state of the legal industry. While we are always on the lookout for highly qualified candidates, we only hire when we find outstanding individuals who embody the following qualities that we believe are the keys to success for and within the Firm:
We only seek high achievers who went to the nation’s best schools, with emphasis on scholastic achievements and honors. We believe that surrounding ourselves with sharp and ambitious people who will challenge each other is critical to the Firm’s continued success.
We want attorneys who have at least two years of experience at large, nationally-recognized and respected law firms. We handle the same complex big-law matters as large firms only in a leaner and more streamlined work environment. The skills and legal sophistication acquired from working in a large firm is the best preparation to make an immediate impact on our practice without the hand-holding.
We look for attorneys who share in our strong belief that the client always comes first and must be provided services of the highest quality at all times. Being a boutique law firm allows us to eliminate unnecessary meetings and billable hour requirements. We trust in our attorneys’ abilities to work together efficiently to create cost-effective solutions which translates into savings for the client with no compromise on the quality of work.
Drive to Develop the Practice
We desire attorneys who want to develop business and contribute to the growth of the Firm. Our big-law experience combined with a rational rate structure are marketable qualities in today’s legal industry. We want associates who have entrepreneurial spirit and are ambitious to capitalize on the Firm’s stellar reputation as a platform to build business. Have no fear – we have plenty of partners who are highly-skilled at business development and excited to show young attorneys the ropes.
We’re a small firm where everyone has to set aside their egos to work together very closely under very demanding circumstances to achieve our common goal of providing exceptional service. If you interview here, you will have an opportunity to meet and spend time with all of our attorneys, each of whom will have input in the hiring process. We only want you to join us if it feels like a good fit to you, as well as to us.
