Legal Careers

Faegre Baker Daniels is a high performance culture offering talented professionals: 

  • Challenging, sophisticated legal work for top clients
  • The opportunity to work on dynamic, collaborative teams
  • The ability to grow, learn, and receive mentoring and coaching 
  • Varying career path options rather than a one-size-fits-all approach

Our largest clients include Fortune 500 companies as well as middle market and startup firms. We also represent many of the most significant businesses in the markets where we have offices.

Lateral Careers

At FaegreBD, we value the practice you have developed. We seek experienced lawyers who are entrepreneurial, ambitious, team-oriented, and enthusiastic about building on our large client base and joining a high performance culture. We thrive on the diversity and depth of experiences our lateral lawyers bring to the firm. Lawyers with niche practices often find substantial growth opportunities from cross-serving our large base of national and international clients.

Lateral recruiting is an important part of our efforts to provide the expertise and experience our clients expect and deserve. We hire many lateral lawyers each year from Am Law 100 firms, Fortune 500 corporations, and local, state and national governments. 

Integration is critical to each lawyer's success and to ours — so we provide a comprehensive lateral integration process with access to cross-serving opportunities, designed to assure a smooth, well-organized transition. Lateral partners participate in an extensive integration plan, which includes a team-based approach to facilitate smooth client transition and encourages assimilation into our culture of teamwork and collaboration. 

Entry-Level Careers

For new lawyers at FaegreBD, we provide support and training to help you build the skills and behaviors to grow a sophisticated legal practice and develop rewarding client relationships. We are proud of our track record of hiring associates who become successful partners or long-term contributors with national reputations in their areas of specialty.

This does not happen by accident. We emphasize small teams, where new lawyers work directly with experienced partners and leading clients. We encourage your growth with challenging work, intensive legal education programs, personalized mentoring and coaching, and respectful yet candid feedback.

Professional development is vital to an entry-level lawyer's success. Our professional development program supports new lawyers through tailored group and individual programming. We prepare our associates for dynamic legal careers, focusing on practice skill development, understanding the business of operating a law firm, performance management, marketing and business development skills.
