Your practice is your business. At Winthrop, we’re cultivating a team of forward-thinking, innovative lawyers who solve problems and generate results for our clients. We’re not your typical law firm. We consistently look for ways to push the boundaries of the law and make it work harder for our clients. We are always interested in bringing on forward-thinkers who will help us in this mission to supplement growing practice areas or add areas of experience.
We believe in creating an environment that fosters development, success and long-term enjoyment of practicing law, while allowing you to assume responsibility and pursue your professional interests. Our office atmosphere is collegial, where attorneys and staff truly enjoy working together to serve our clients’ needs. As a reward for hard work and an enterprising spirit, we offer associates a unique opportunity for early shareholder status and additional compensation. We also sponsor regular formal and informal social and recreational firm-wide activities throughout the year.
Our associate compensation system is designed to attract and recruit the top law students throughout the United States and reward those whose productivity contributes to the growth and profitability of the firm. This includes not only a market rate compensation and bonus structure, but also opportunities to participate in activities traditionally reserved for shareholders and to attain early shareholder status.
Winthrop also has a unique program that confers upon select associates the status of “Managing Associate,” discarding many of the traditional distinctions between shareholders and top-performing associates. Managing Associates are invited to attend shareholder meetings, serve on most firm committees, and receive most financial information regularly distributed to shareholders. In addition, Managing Associates are eligible for early shareholder consideration, reflecting our commitment to reward qualified associates with aspects of law firm ownership in the pursuit of success for our clients.

Summer Associate Program
The Summer Associate program is designed to provide an experience that reflects life at the firm as a lawyer. It is offered to law students after their first or second year, and presents a challenging variety of legal work.
As a summer associate, you’ll prepare agreements, briefs, interrogatories, and other legal documents and be encouraged to attend client meetings, depositions, court hearings, negotiations and closings. You’ll be assigned a mentor who helps you with administrative, professional and personal questions. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with a number of different attorneys throughout the summer.
You’ll work in different areas of practice throughout your experience, and rather than a formal rotation program, you’ll have significant exposure to a particular practice area, if you so desire.
Almost every summer associate who has received an offer to join the firm has accepted it.
We are an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.
