How to Get Hired
We asked Freeborn & Peters LLP for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
First and foremost, we look for people who demonstrate that they are in tune with our five core values, namely: integrity, caring, effectiveness, teamwork, and commitment. We want to know that these are standards that they believe are important, and that they would find appealing in a potential employer. We also expect that we are engaging and investing in someone who is interested in more than just a job. We hope that new associates will become partners and eventually shareholders in the firm; and many of our staff have several decades of tenure. To that end, we seek people who are collegial and who want to be part of something larger than themselves. We want people who are curious, who make sense of information that suggests new possibilities, who communicate and connect with people, and who have the determination to fight together for big goals.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We believe that our culture and our business model differentiate us from our many competitors in legal services. As such, we look for candidates who can also differentiate themselves in our eyes. Be able to state why your services are valuable to clients and to explain how the resources that are available to you in your firm can help you expand your book of business. To gain our attention, come to engage with us in a manner that is consistent with our values: demonstrate where you have contributed positively to the culture of your prior firms; ask questions about what we do and why we do it; and – respectfully – suggest innovate ways of doing things that go beyond what our firm is capable of today.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We always have an interest in speaking with attorneys looking to make a move. All experience levels are of interest to us. Our primary practice groups include litigation, corporate law, real estate, bankruptcy, and government and regulatory law. While we serve clients across all sectors, we are also looking for attorneys with experience in particular industries, including food; insurance and reinsurance; transportation, including railroads, trucking, and logistics; private equity and venture capital, healthcare; and construction services.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates should send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org for attorney positions and email@example.com for all staff level positions. Visit our website at www.freeborn.com.
