Careers

Kasowitz is one of the leading litigation law firms in the country.  The firm believes that our unique structure and collegial culture distinguish us from other prominent law firms. 

Profiled by Chambers Associate, a prominent career guide published by the leading legal publisher Chambers and Partners, the firm is described as hiring with a “premium on personality,” and attorneys are recognized for being “engaging.”  Chambers Associate also notes, “In its near 20-year existence, the firm has fast established a reputation for taking impossible cases to court and winning them.”

Kasowitz has also been featured among the 100 most prestigious law firms on Vault.com.  The firm ranked #6 for “Best Summer Program,” #24 for “Overall Satisfaction,” and #1 for “Most Fun Summer Program.”  In addition to Chambers Associate and Vault, the firm has been profiled by Lateral Link: "Members say the 'positive atmosphere' at Kasowitz is one of the best parts about working at the firm, and believe the firm is 'well-managed' and secure."

Associates Assume Substantial Responsibility.  Because we staff matters leanly, associates take on meaningful responsibility at an early stage in their careers.  The level of responsibility that an associate shoulders is determined only by that associate’s willingness and ability, not by artificial or hierarchical structures often found at larger full-service firms.

High Energy Atmosphere.  We are an energetic and hard-working group of lawyers.  Our associates work directly with experienced partners in an informal environment which fosters close working relationships, both with colleagues and clients.  We expect that our associates will develop into complete, well-rounded lawyers, capable of handling all aspects of litigation matters.  Associate training is hands-on, and creative and independent thinking is encouraged.

No Trade-Offs.  At most firms, associates sacrifice challenging work or compensation for a more rewarding and pleasant work experience.  Not here.  Our attorneys work in close-knit teams on highly sophisticated matters.  Associate and summer associate compensation is competitive with that of other major New York firms.  Salaries for offices other than New York are commensurate with top law firms in that city.

Kasowitz is an equal opportunity employer.  All applicants will be considered without regard to age, race, color, sex, religion, national origin, marital status, ancestry, citizenship, veteran status, employment status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, genetic predisposition or carrier status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
