Lateral Hires

If you are an experienced intellectual property lawyer looking to make a move, we think you will find Young Basile to be an exciting platform for advancing your career.  We have grown rapidly in recent years and expect to continue our growth, consistent with client demand.  We are looking for experienced litigators, transaction attorneys, and intellectual property practitioners with and without books of business that would like to grow with us. We are also seeking experienced IP groups in our growth markets.

We have an egalitarian and team-oriented culture that affords opportunities for success along with a pleasant work environment.   

For associates, we offer opportunities of growth, client contact and a surer path to partnership.  While every associate’s experience is different, it is not uncommon at Young Basile to find associates helping to manage important client relationships and even receiving origination credit for those relationships.  Our associates also enjoy extensive client contact, chances to work on strategic matters throughout the world, and a formulaic compensation system that predictably rewards hard work. 

For lateral partners building business, we offer a collegial firm including a cost-effective and talented bench of associates that will fuel your practice. Perhaps you’re tired of explaining to clients why your associate staffing costs $500 per hour.  We can provide you with outstanding, national-class attorneys at a more reasonable cost – typically under $300 per hour.  Perhaps you’ve grown weary of fighting over compensation or waiting for a black-box committee to decide your fate every year.   Our formulaic compensation system pays shareholders a predictable, objective distribution based on their collections and work.

For senior partners planning ahead, Young Basile offers you a way to monetize your practice after retirement through our unique post-retirement residual program.  Enjoy your last years of practice before entrusting your client relationships to younger colleagues of your choosing.  We will then pay a substantial portion of your origination credit for seven years.

If you would like to join our team, please submit your cover letter, detailed resume, and lateral business plan (if available) in confidence to: Recruitment Coordinator, Young Basile, 3001 West Big Beaver Road, Suite 624, Troy, Michigan, 48084, careers@youngbasile.com.
