Lateral Hires

You may not have started your legal practice at Howard & Howard, but it could be the firm where you spend the rest of your career.

Look around Howard & Howard and you’ll see top-notch lawyers in a variety of practice areas. Some of our attorneys started at the Firm fresh out of law school, while others joined us after completing clerkships, leaving in-house positions, or moving from other firms. No matter when or from where they arrived, they all share a common thread–they are entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to be the best and work with the best.

Since 1869, Howard & Howard has grown with the clients we represent. Just as they focus on their businesses, so do we. We focus on maintaining low overhead, providing quality service at competitive hourly rates, and compensating attorneys based on merit. Our success comes from our attorneys’ professional excellence and the ability of everyone at the Firm to work collegially in result-oriented teams. We foster and reward creativity, collaboration, and accomplishment. Many loyal, long-term clients cite our practical approach to the business of law as the factor that distinguishes us from the competition.

The quality and experience of our lawyers are among our greatest strengths, and we invest in lateral hires by nurturing an environment in which they seamlessly integrate into our culture and are continually supported in their quests for professional development and challenging work. The Firm’s bottom line depends on each of our attorneys’ bottom lines, and we help them build their businesses.

If you have a portable book of business that you intend to grow, or the desire to develop a book of business, and you agree with the following principles, you may be a fit for our firm:

  • Compensation should be based exclusively on merit.
  • Profits should be distributed monthly, not annually.
  • The business of the legal practice must be collegial, transparent, and entrepreneurial.
  • The firm should efficiently handle the “back of the house” allowing lawyers to focus exclusively on their business.
  • Overhead should be limited to allow the maximum return of dollars to lawyer compensation.
