The firm works almost exclusively on a flat fee basis and doesn’t track attorney hours (except as necessary for a very few non-fixed fee matters.) You can work from home, from a WeWork space, from your own office, or pretty much wherever you want as long as you have access to a phone and internet connection. The firm is comprised of former Big Law attorneys and represents national and regional real estate funds and firms, brokerages, retailers, and restaurants. The firm is extremely profitable. All attorneys have the title of “Attorney” and all equity-level attorneys share in the profits of the entire enterprise. Equity partnership is possible after a short trial period of 12-18 months, depending on how much business an attorney is able to develop. Our client is looking to add senior associates/counsels who have at least $150K-$200K in portable business. For partners, a minimum book of $400K is required.
