From Quarles & Brady LLP:
As of 10/1/07 starting salary will be $145,000. Quarles & Brady LLP (Q&B to our friends) has more than 430 attorneys practicing in six offices across the country. 123 of our attorneys are listed in the Best Lawyers in America, and another 107 of our attorneys are extremely funny people although there is little overlap between those two groups because smart people are often humorless.
Actually, while that is true of the general population, our claim to fame is that we have both of the essential ingredients for a wonderful law career: cutting edge work and wonderful people (check out our website on this point at www.careers.quarles.com) and it is also a boatload of fun. The Summer Associate program provides first-hand knowledge of the Firm's culture, clients, practice areas as well as our favorite coffee joints. Summer associates are given a variety of client projects and are also given the opportunity to observe our attorneys in action (not in combat, but more along the lines of depositions, hearings, client meetings, closings, etc.)
We are committed to training and mentoring our summer associates and associates and feeding them very well. Check out Q&B - we are as good as we sound!
Anyone else think this firm is trying a little too hard?
