Come Make Your Mark

We recognize the enormous value that an experienced attorney can bring to our firm. We stand apart because of the opportunities that we offer—the chance to work with a dynamic client base, the autonomy to develop a career quickly, and a collaborative and enjoyable work atmosphere.

We seek out and hire individuals with diverse backgrounds and personal experiences. That diversity of perspective makes us creative problem solvers and a better team. Our attorneys pursue excellence, enjoy working hard in a collaborative environment and have access to resources and relationships to build interesting careers.

Attorney Technologists

We have numerous “technologists” in our attorney ranks and are always looking for more. We seek out lawyers with backgrounds in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry, biology and other life sciences. Our clients expect us to thoroughly understand their technologies and apply that knowledge to innovative legal and business solutions, from licensing technology, prosecuting patents and counseling on product development, to litigating complex IP disputes.

Free Market System

Fenwick’s free market system empowers associates to be in the driver’s seat of their careers. People aren’t pigeonholed into tasks or roles; and with guidance from practice management professionals and mentors, associates have significant input in selecting the type of work they do and the attorneys with whom they work. At every step, attorneys have the opportunities and support to develop accomplished careers, whether the goal is to become a partner, join a client, start a business, or take a path less-traveled.

Legal Training and Development

At Fenwick, we provide the resources and hands-on advice to empower associates to manage their careers. Programs focus on developing and building skills such as leadership, networking, presentations and client pitches, and personal business plans.

  • Fenwick University

    Fenwick University programs are designed to support attorneys through career transitions beyond the substantive legal skills and knowledge that are table stakes for any law firm attorney. Summer associates learn how to adapt what they learned in their first years of law school to real life cases and deals. First-year associates focus on transitioning to become successful junior associates. Mid-level associates learn the importance of managing both up and down on their teams. Senior-level associates are supported in developing clients and establishing their practice. The holistic approach supports professional growth and development along all career paths, and ensures professionals have what they need to achieve their goals.

  • Confidential Advisors

    Partners and senior associates serve as confidential advisors to new attorneys and take time to listen and understand their experiences, aspirations, and concerns and provide guidance, support and knowledge to enhance their professional development. The program helps build long-lasting relationships and trust within the firm.

  • Mentoring

    Our mentoring and coaching program provides support and career guidance as attorneys advance in their careers, contemplate a practice specialty or niche, and look externally to build relationships with clients and other important contacts.
