Career Paths

Lateral Attorneys


We provide opportunities to work with some of the largest and most influential businesses in the country. We look forward to hearing from currently practicing labor and employment attorneys with impeccable credentials and experience.  Ogletree welcomes applications from qualified candidates who are interested in our traditional associate, of counsel and shareholder roles.  


Counsel Track Attorneys


We have special counsel, counsel and senior counsel opportunities that offer non-traditional paths for experienced attorneys that may be interested in project based work or lower billable hour requirements.  These unique part-time and full-time roles are for those who want or need flexible hours during the work week, including the option to work from home on most occasions.  Counsel track attorneys will often times be expected to perform all of the duties of a traditional law firm associate, but may not have the billable hour expectations of our on-track attorneys.  Joining the Firm in a counsel role or moving into a counsel track does not permanently place one on a non-traditional path, counsels can move into traditional roles based on their work product, ability to work a full-time traditional schedule and Firm needs in their local office. 

Entry-Level Associates

Our beginning associates are immediately involved and challenged in all aspects of our cases and supported by the mentoring and supervision of more senior attorneys. Recent law school graduates with exceptional transcripts and legal internships are invited to submit resumes with transcripts and writing samples.

Each year we recruit for Entry-Level Associates at two or three diversity career fairs. In 2017 we will participate in the Indy Bar Association Diversity Job Fair, Hispanic National Bar Association Career Fair, and the Lavender Law Career Fair.
