Recruitment Process

Finding Remarkable People

We strive to hire lawyers who have the potential to become owners of our firm. We look for attorneys who have integrity, intellect, enthusiasm, and a demonstrated work ethic. We value those who are willing to take initiative, assume responsibility and work well with others. While we regularly hire new lawyers through our summer program, opportunities exist for third year law students and lateral attorneys as well. We encourage all to apply.

Where We Recruit
Each year, HSE recruits on campus at select law schools, at HSE-sponsored consortiums, and at diversity job fairs and conferences. We also invite applicants to reach out to us directly.
