Anderson Kill provides unusual opportunities for young lawyers in an atmosphere that might be considered unorthodox by other law firms.  Anderson Kill strives to eliminate an "employee" mentality and to create a work ethic and environment in which every lawyer is a responsible professional.  All lawyers, regardless of seniority, are encouraged to participate in aspects of firm management.

Anderson Kill seeks to hire from among the most qualified judicial law clerks and attorneys in the country.  The firm looks for candidates who are bright, "hungry," energetic, creative, self-motivated, and who possess common sense. Those who come to the firm with the goal of becoming great lawyers can thrive.  This philosophy means that junior lawyers can develop their skills quickly and learn to take on primary responsibilities—such as client involvement, negotiations with opposing counsel, depositions, other discovery and court appearances—at an accelerated rate.

Anderson Kill attorneys offer diverse personal, philosophical, and political views and backgrounds.  The firm takes pride in our collegial and remarkably unconventional atmosphere in which it provides our clients and the community with the highest quality legal representation while encouraging each attorney to maintain her/his own personality and individualism.

Anderson Kill seeks to continue to grow its insurance recovery, corporate and business law practices across its network of offices.  We are seeking small groups of entrepreneurial attorneys with established practices and a mind for business development to join us at one of our offices in Manhattan, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Denver, CO, Stamford, CT, Washington, DC, Newark, NJ and Los Angeles, CA.

The ideal candidate will have an excellent reputation for personal and professional integrity as well as superior legal analytical ability and a current track record of delivering superior service to their corporate and institutional clients.

Anderson Kill offers many qualities attractive to lateral candidates while providing an exceptional work environment for attorneys who wish to continue growing their practices.  Please contact our Legal Talent Acquisition Consultant, Kate Tylis at, for more information about these opportunity.  All inquiries will remain confidential.
