At MCBB, the quality of our work and client base are decidedly big firm. Virtually everything else is different. We have few rules, no bureaucracy, and very high expectations of ourselves and others. We recruit lawyers who are interested in litigation, self-directed, ambitious, and dedicated to making a difference in the community and the profession.
Careers at MCBB:
MCBB offers the ability to do the highest quality work in an environment that fosters and rewards individual initiative and creativity. New lawyers are given early and significant responsibility, but also work closely with senior attorneys and receive significant formal and informal training and mentoring.
Although stellar academic achievement and a strong work ethic are essential prerequisites, we look for much more. We expect all of our lawyers to dedicate themselves to cultivating a complete legal skill set. We do not recruit “office lawyers.” We look for people who have top-notch analytical and writing skills, but also strong social, emotional and leadership attributes; people with the ability to be just as persuasive in conversation as they are in writing. And while we look for candidates with extraordinary professional skills, we also want to associate with people who have interests and abilities outside of the profession. We are all citizens of the community, and we have chosen to live and work in a community that offers unparalleled recreational and civic opportunities. We enjoy our lives, both professionally and personally, and we believe that a lawyer’s professional skill and accomplishment need not come at the expense of personal interests and pursuits. If you share our philosophy, we want to talk to you.
Compensation and Benefits:
MCBB offers top of the market compensation and benefits because we want to attract and keep the very best legal talent who are committed to maintaining MCBB’s reputation as one of the best law firms in the region. Benefits include profit sharing, a 401(k) plan with a matching program, health, vision, dental and life insurance, and discretionary bonuses.
