Opportunities for Laterals

Laterals join our firm because of the work we do, the clients we serve, and the opportunities we provide. But what distinguishes Faegre Drinker from other firms is our culture of collegiality where colleagues are friends and personal and professional respect are not merely convenient platitudes. We are a firm designed for clients where “legal excellence” and “workplace community” are tenets that are ever present within our practices and across geographies. We embrace creative staffing, design thinking and new ways of approaching legal and professional services that align to our clients’ business goals. We check our egos at the door and deliver excellence without arrogance.

At Faegre Drinker, you’ll find collaborative colleagues, a supportive environment, and opportunities to grow personally and professionally.
