At Seyfarth, your career possibilities are limitless.

We value the unique contributions of all of our team members. If you work at a law firm, but not as an attorney, you've come to the right place. 

We understand that it takes more than attorneys to build a successful legal practice. Great people are the key to Seyfarth’s success. That’s true not just for the lawyers who join the firm, but for all of the business professionals and administrative staff we hire. These people ensure the firm’s operations run smoothly and that our clients receive an optimal experience at every touch point.

Seyfarth’s culture embraces the entrepreneurial spirit of its professionals like no other firm. The firm's professional staff are a collaborative team, helping to define the unique client experience offered by the firm. Our attorneys have a true appreciation for the unique perspective that each person brings, and everyone participates in our commitment to excellence.


“Seyfarth has a true appreciation of the professional staff that form the backbone of the firm. Everyone is encouraged to develop bold, inventive solutions, and own their career trajectory.”
