We are a boutique law firm with a fast paced, sophisticated litigation practice. Our partners include BigLaw alums, as well as federal district and circuit court law clerks. All of our partners have served as federal prosecutors handling sophisticated white collar criminal cases, as well as high-stakes civil matters.

Although we frequently partner with AmLaw firms, the Griffin Durham litigation teams are designed to be lean and efficient. We expect our associates to take substantive roles early and often. This includes creating written work product, taking depositions, and sitting at counsel table during trial. We are looking for young lawyers who want to take on significant responsibility and who can perform at a high level.

For interested associate candidates, please reach out if our practice sounds like the right fit and if…

  • You want more and earlier opportunities for brief writing, depositions, hearings, appellate arguments, and trials.
  • You’re comfortable as a self-starter and flexible in a fast-paced environment.
  • You want to litigate on both the plaintiff and defense sides, as well as both with and against the government.
  • You have impeccable judgment.

We are always looking for young attorneys. Ideal candidates will be those who graduated at the top of their class, worked on law review, and served in federal clerkships.
