Careers

Overview
At McNees, we foster a Firm culture that attracts and retains dedicated and high-performing attorneys and professionals.  We place a strong emphasis on attracting highly qualified professionals including lateral candidates with defined areas of substantive experience. At our Firm, we believe it is important that our attorneys collaborate across practice areas and offices, and are committed to serving  their communities through involvement with nonprofit organizations, volunteer projects, and civic leadership.

McNees offers attorneys the opportunity to practice in challenging and sophisticated areas of the law, and we focus heavily on mentorship, empowering new associates and laterals to become leaders and experts in their practice area. Our Firm places a significant emphasis on strategic growth, and we are committed to creating and communicating opportunities for career development and advancement for all McNees attorneys and professionals. We offer a competitive salary, a broad range of benefits, and an inclusive team approach to practicing law.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
McNees is committed to recruiting, retaining and promoting a diverse workforce, as reflected in the Firm’s core values and the mission statement of the Firm’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.

We are dedicated to hiring and retaining individuals of diverse backgrounds, utilizing their talents and comprehensive experiences to provide legal services of the highest quality and to meet the full array of our clients’ needs. We embrace the belief that different perspectives enhance our Firm’s ability to provide creative and successful best solutions for our clients.

Mentor Program
McNees values mentorship in the workplace and is pleased to have established a formal mentoring program focused on guiding and empowering each of its attorneys. Leveraging a “pod” concept, mentor groups consist of incoming associates and laterals, existing McNees attorneys and advisors. When integrating at McNees, individuals are assigned to a pod that meets consistently virtually and in person, to provide an open forum to ask questions, share experiences and ultimately support each other’s professional growth

As indicated, the program is available to every attorney at McNees, as we recognize the value of the connection, growth and leadership opportunities associated with it. We strive to foster an inclusive atmosphere and this program supports that effort.

Supporting diversity through our Professional Development and Education Committee (PDEC)
Our Professional Development and Education Committee (PDEC) provides input to the Firm’s Management Committee on important issues such as the McNees Core Values, life balance, the alternative work policy, and diversity and inclusion. PDEC is responsible for a number of initiatives that promote personal and professional fulfillment and help McNees maintain its traditions of collegiality and community involvement.

PDEC Initiatives include:

  • A series of introductory training sessions for attorneys new to McNees including an annual New Attorney Orientation;
  • Targeted training for junior associates, the McNees Leadership Series (for mid-level, senior associates and of counsel attorneys), and the McNees Litigation Academy as well as,
  • Additional trainings offered throughout the year, on a variety of professional development topics, that are open to all timekeepers.

The PDEC provides all McNees employees with opportunities to support local charities through fundraising and “hands-on” volunteer projects. Firm leadership promotes collegiality and social interaction among our attorneys, most notably by organizing celebrations for our attorneys when they pass the Bar Examination and are elected into the firm’s Membership.  The McNees tradition of celebrating these significant milestones with each other has been in existence for decades.
