Attorneys

Hodgson Russ is committed to expanding our firm through the hiring and development of both entry-level attorneys and experienced lateral attorneys.

We hire entry-level attorneys primarily through our Summer Associate Program. We also recruit third-year law students as needed for our growing practice areas.

Our lateral hiring is based on the needs of our practice groups and the needs of our clients. We are also always interested in considering groups of experienced attorneys who possess a self-sustaining portable practice and would like to integrate into our firm. In all cases, we maintain our traditionally high hiring standards in evaluating candidates with experience, so that experienced lawyers who join us have equal success in practice with those who joined us through our entry-level hiring program.

Whether or not we have a particular need, if you are an attorney with an outstanding record of academic and professional achievement, and you believe you would thrive at our firm, please contact us. Our needs change over time.
