Loeb & Loeb is focused on helping organizations and individuals innovate, grow and evolve in a changing world. Our market-leading practice and industry teams deliver practical insight and strategic solutions in complex deals, high-profile disputes, cutting-edge regulatory issues and other matters critical to our clients’ success. We represent a wide range of organizations, as well as high net worth individuals and families. Our lawyers help these clients identify opportunities, expand into new markets, launch innovative products and services, protect their assets, resolve disputes, and connect with audiences in new ways. We have tremendous multidisciplinary know-how in today’s technology and mobility trends, which continue to transcend all industries.
The firm prides itself on building teams of lawyers who are as passionate and intellectually enthusiastic about the law as they are committed to the amicable culture that the Firm has embraced since 1909. We attribute much of our good culture to an accessible and engaged leadership team.
Loeb’s pleasant working environment puts the focus on our only asset: Our people. Both lawyers and staff enjoy longevity at the firm. Our environment fosters collaboration and collegiality, and we expect partners and employees to exercise respect at all times. The challenges introduced by the global pandemic highlighted the strength of our connections and reinforced the firm’s commitment to our people and ability to adapt to unchartered territory.
Who We Hire
With a focus on lateral hiring, we seek experienced candidates who have identified a chosen practice area and aspire to continue to develop within their field. Successful candidates have strong academic backgrounds, relevant work experience, and the desire to be part of a close-knit team. Many of our most successful lawyers possess an entrepreneurial spirit. Those who demonstrate the ability to take on matters beyond their years of experience are given the opportunity regularly.
While associates have developmental opportunities through direct partner contact and informal mentoring, we supplement growth through a series of formal firm-sponsored initiatives: The Loeb Institute, a professional skills series intended for all lawyers, regardless of level and practice area; practical skills training, sponsored by individual departments; access to premier third-party training; client development training opportunities, such as business development coaching program led by industry experts skilled in advising senior-level associates who are beginning to engage in business development; and more. Our Legal Talent Management Department maintains personal connections with associates in order to proactively identify development opportunities and address needs.
Loeb’s Mentoring Circles provide participants the opportunity to connect with colleagues at various levels and in various offices. Beyond the social aspect of mentoring, our Mentoring Circles allow associates and partners to discuss timely professional skills topics and issues that are essential for contemporary law practice, such as leadership, communication, resilience and grit, and team-building.
As associates advance, Loeb provides a viable path to partnership. For those strong individuals who do not join the partnership ranks, counsel roles are a desirable option. Associates who depart the firm often transition to general counsel jobs, which may be with clients or government positions.
Diversity & Inclusion
Over the past several years, we have taken great strides in defining our culture of inclusion and have worked to strengthen our initiatives and programs. Recent growth is due to the adoption of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Strategic Priorities. In an effort to jumpstart the our diversity and inclusion efforts, the D&I Strategic Priorities – a blueprint for next steps – were created by a working group of members from underrepresented groups, ensuring their concerns were integral to the process. As the firm continues to progress through the stages outlined by the D&I Strategic Priorities, we have seen unprecedented levels of success, including substantial growth in both income and capital partner ranks for female and minority partners. We are also proud to have earned recognition from several organizations, including the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (earning the Top Performer and Compass Awards in 2021), the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (ranking as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” four years in a row as of 2022), and the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (receiving their Gold Standard Certification for the first time in 2019). In 2022, we remain committed to improving recruitment, retention and promotion of our diverse lawyers and to ensure that our culture and work environment support and encourage diversity in all circumstances and at all levels.
Loeb’s Pro Bono program provides legal services without charge to those who cannot otherwise afford legal representation. Lawyers working on pro bono matters have full resources and firm support available to them. Since 2017, the firm’s contribution to pro bono hours has grown by 178%. We work on a wide variety of pro bono projects, including immigration law, civil rights, family law, death penalty cases, veterans’ rights and more. A common theme through many of our pro bono cases has been the support of children and minors in need of legal services. Our work is varied – ranging from representing undocumented children in their asylum cases through partnership with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), helping families finalize foster care adoptions with the Alliance for Children’s Rights, to providing pro bono support to the nonprofit Saving Innocence whose mission is to eradicate child sex trafficking. We are proud to partner with a wide variety of local and nationwide public interest organizations on pro bono initiatives to maximize the impact of our work.
Our Technology department supports the firm's shift towards a more agile work environment. A focus on seamless mobility has provided our team the ability to work efficiently from any location. We, like our clients and leading industry professionals, are shifting towards a greater adoption of legal technology. Whether it’s tech supporting matter related activities, eDiscovery, data analytics, Loeb’s Technology department is preparing to play a greater role in the business strategy, client engagement and the practice of law.
