Work for a well established regional law firm, with local, regional and international clientele. Particularly, this firm has a strong connection to Asian clients, which clients have been with the firm for many, many years. The work this firm does for their clients covers all areas of the law, including incorporation to mergers and acquisitions, immigration to intellectual property, employment matters to the distribution of goods and services, and the purchase and sale of assets to litigation. The firm atmosphere is very collegial, where lawyers meet on a regular basis to discuss changes in the law, exchange ideas and tackle specific client problems. For some of their international clients, this firm is the first stop when the client contemplates doing business or investing in the United States. The firm hires from regional schools, and values diverse experiences, particularly with Asian countries, more than just schools and grades. The firm is not hierarchical and partnership potential is real. There are plenty of young partners, and their doors are open for mentoring younger associates. This is not a powerful, prestigious firm with ties to international conglomerates and government. It is simply a solid firm that specializes in representing Asia-based clients in their transactions in the United States, particularly in the Midwest.

Your information will not be forwarded to any employers at this time. A recruiter will contact you with more information once our internal review of your resume is completed.
