Golenbock Eiseman Assor Bell & Peskoe LLP is a mid-sized law firm in New York City providing sophisticated counsel and representation to a wide range of clients, including:

路 Large and middle-market public and private companies and company executives

路 Private equity and venture capital funds

路 Real estate developers and owners

路 Technology and life sciences companies

路 Hospitality businesses

路 High net worth individuals

Golenbock has a prominent corporate practice along with robust real estate, litigation, tax, hospitality, IP, trusts and estates, bankruptcy and employment practices. Golenbock鈥檚 attorneys are highly regarded in their fields and trusted by sophisticated clients on a broad range of matters. Golenbock鈥檚 litigation team frequently represents large companies in addition to the middle-market clients that make up much of the firm鈥檚 client base.

The firm is a member of Alliott Global Alliance, an international alliance of law and accounting firms, which enhances its ability to advise clients with respect to international transactions and other matters.

Golenbock offers associates:

路 Friendly, collaborative working environment

路 Billable hour expectations significantly below that of BigLaw

路 More competitive hourly rates, enhancing our lawyers鈥 ability to develop business.

路 Hybrid work model

Golenbock also offers a fee sharing arrangement on sourced clients, as well as a full range of elective health benefits. Associates are encouraged to undertake pro bono work.

Golenbock has maintained its stability and strength over the past 41 years by hiring top-tier lateral attorneys, many from large, well-known firms. The firm hires lateral associates who are well-trained and seeking opportunities to further develop their skills. Many of its attorneys transitioned from BigLaw to pursue an entrepreneurial work environment that offers diversity of assigned matters, exposure to clients, and a better work-life balance, without sacrificing the sophistication of their practices.

Golenbock鈥檚 ideal lateral candidates have cut their teeth at either a BigLaw or mid-sized firm and are now seeking greater control over their work and more time for the other aspects of their life. Associates who succeed at Golenbock embrace the opportunity to work directly with clients and co-counsel on small teams and take on significant responsibility. In addition, Golenbock鈥檚 lower billing rates and fee sharing arrangement are a great fit for attorneys with an entrepreneurial streak, looking to chart their path and build a practice within the firm.

Golenbock鈥檚 Litigation Practice Group seeks a junior- to mid-level associate with a drive to develop into a well-rounded litigator. We are seeking an attorney with the following abilities and experience:

路 Commercial litigation experience in state and federal courts and arbitrations

路 Strong research and writing skills

路 Ideally experience in depositions and court appearances

路 Readiness to work with clients and take control of all aspects of a case

路 Federal clerkship would be helpful for this position

Golenbock offers its associates a broad and varied substantive case load, including fraud cases, securities litigation, fiduciary duty breaches, commercial contract disputes, partnership and LLC disputes, restrictive covenant and employment disputes, real estate litigation, bankruptcy/trustee litigation, IP disputes and more.

The salary range for this position is $170,000 to $240,000, depending on the candidate鈥檚 specific skillset and number of years of relevant experience.
