Careers

The terrain of business and law is constantly changing. Foster Pepper continues to evolve with the market but remains focused on obtaining the best possible outcomes for our clients. As a Foster Pepper attorney or staff member you will work in a culture that is collaborative and collegial. To maintain this rewarding environment, we actively recruit, develop and retain a talented and diverse legal team. We welcome your inquiries and would be pleased to answer any questions you may have about joining our firm.

Attorney Recruitment

Each year, we begin recruiting for our Summer Associate Program in July and typically conclude in-house and on-campus interviews in November. In the meantime, be sure to view our Recruiting Brochure (PDF). For additional information, please contact Bethany Brown, Senior Manager of Attorney Recruitment & Professional Development.

Diversity

Diversity and inclusion are integrated throughout Foster Pepper’s firm culture, client service methodologies, and business structure. We believe a strategic focus on diversity and inclusion improves our ability to serve clients through creative, collaborative advocacy. We are committed to recruiting and retaining diverse attorneys and staff, training and promoting from within, and increasing diverse representation in all aspects of the firm, as evidenced by our executive leadership.

Foster Pepper strives for a workforce reflective of the communities we serve. Currently, 17 percent of our attorneys and 25 percent of our staff are from diverse backgrounds. Over the past two years, 35 percent of our new attorneys and staff came from diverse backgrounds. Our goal is to continue to maintain or increase these percentages year-over-year through our recruiting efforts and inclusion programs.
