Young lawyers at Balestriere Fariello get as much case responsibility as they can handle, while always being supervised by partners and senior associates. Case teams are small, so even if a lawyer is junior she will have influence regarding how cases proceed, and will have the opportunity to handle appearances in court or arbitration and in depositions as soon as possible. Junior lawyers have significant writing responsibility, with all writing reviewed and edited heavily by senior lawyers so that young lawyers develop their writing significantly.
From its inception, Balestriere Fariello has strived to be a firm that fosters a collegial environment, where employees at all levels feel comfortable and welcomed working here. Consistent with these goals, we work hard to create a positive learning experience for the Junior Associates, building close working relationships with the firm’s other staff.
