Robins Kaplan Announces New $100,000 Federal Law Clerk Bonus
September 2, 2020
Robins Kaplan is pleased to announce its new bonus program to recruit federal law clerks. Lawyers who join Robins Kaplan immediately upon completion of at least a one-year district court or appellate federal clerkship may now be eligible to receive a $100,000 bonus.* “This bonus program reflects our commitment to recruiting the best of the best,” says Partner and Recruiting Chair Patrick M. Arenz. “Those who want to become the next generation of elite trial lawyers: excellent writers, charismatic storytellers, and resilient advocates.” Robins Kaplan will also offer credit towards partnership consideration for eligible clerkships.
The Next Generation of Trial Lawyers.
Robins Kaplan is in search of the next generation of trial lawyers who want to rewrite the odds for their clients. “We want lawyers who won’t settle for mediocrity and who strive for the extraordinary,” says Partner and Chair of the Executive Board Ronald J. Schutz. “The Firm believes that many federal law clerks have demonstrated a track record of success and accomplishment, and we want to invite them to apply to join our ranks if they want to become high-stakes trial lawyers.” In addition to experience as a federal clerk, successful candidates will possess initiative, ownership, and creativity; be comfortable taking strategic risks; maintain a strong work ethic; and stay resilient in the face of challenge and adversity.
