Associates who join us find ample opportunity to work both independently and as part of one or more of our practice groups. A new associate can explore several substantive areas of law before definitively choosing which road to follow in his or her legal career. When making hiring decisions, we consider several factors, including academic standing, work experience, law school activities, community activities, and clerkships.
Associates in litigation-related practice areas receive considerable client contact and litigation experience. Responsibilities include interviewing witnesses for trial, taking depositions, drafting pleadings, arguing motions, writing trial court and appellate briefs, and trying cases. Associates in our business-related practice areas also receive considerable client contact and exposure to the business environment. Responsibilities include negotiating and drafting contracts, preparation of estate plans, forming business entities, resolving business disputes, completing securities filings, and addressing a wide variety of regulatory and business issues.

By Practice Area
The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist or expert in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.
