All lawyers, regardless of seniority, are encouraged to participate in aspects of firm management.
Anderson Kill seeks to hire from among the most qualified judicial law clerks and attorneys in the country. The firm looks for candidates who are bright, "hungry", energetic, creative, self-motivated, and who possess common sense. Those who come to the firm with the goal of becoming great lawyers can thrive. This philosophy means that junior lawyers can develop their skills quickly and learn to take on primary responsibilities—such as client involvement, negotiations with opposing counsel, depositions, other discovery and court appearances—at an accelerated rate.
Anderson Kill attorneys offer diverse personal, philosophical, and political views and backgrounds. The firm takes pride in our collegial and remarkably unconventional atmosphere in which it provides our clients and the community with the highest quality legal representation while encouraging each attorney to maintain her/his own personality and individualism.
