How to Apply

In today’s hiring market, legal professionals face personal employment decisions that are exciting and complex. Partner candidates must consider practice, client and rate compatibility, as well as law firm culture and stability–and the “fit” of proteges who might accompany them. Associates looking for advancement have various opportunities–for the training, compensation and prestige of firm life, or the excitement and challenge of start-up work, or sense of teamwork and business-focus provided by in-house positions.

At CBG, we listen to and counsel our candidates to understand their current employment status and help establish their larger career objectives. Career options should become focused and firm to ensure that a jump out of the frying pan won’t end up in the fire.

We will always be discreet with your materials and will never send them out to a potential employer without checking with you first.  All materials sent in are kept in strict confidence and seen by Ms. Bicksler only.  We never require you to enter your data or materials online.
