The experience gave me invaluable lessons in deposition strategy and also showed me that even the Firm’s name partners make it a priority to train and mentor young lawyers.– Christopher C. Gold, Partner
Robbins Geller has shaped the law in the area of securities litigation and shareholder rights, recovering tens of billions of dollars on behalf of the Firm’s clients. The Firm’s unparalleled experience and capabilities depend on the talents of its accomplished attorneys – many of which are former judicial clerks, accountants, defense lawyers, federal and state prosecutors, SEC enforcement attorneys and regulators.
The Firm’s team of diverse lawyers are smart, highly skilled and tenacious. Many are nationally recognized by various courts, professional organizations and the media for their tireless drive and body of work. Robbins Geller attorneys’ exceptional ability to take a complex case from the evaluation stage all the way through trial and appeal is one reason the Firm represents more institutional clients than any other law firm in the United States.
In putting pro bono and community service at the forefront, from fundraising for the American Cancer Society to helping empower minorities, Robbins Geller encourages its attorneys to apply at least 5% of their billable hours to pro bono work.
At the end of the day, Robbins Geller is fighting to bring about positive change and at the core of that is the Firm’s legal work, pro bono and social responsibility programs made possible by its extraordinary group of attorneys.
Robbins Geller’s intensive litigation practice fosters intelligent, talented and dedicated law students on their journey to becoming excellent lawyers. The Firm’s junior lawyers are given meaningful work that requires a higher degree of responsibility than most firms offer their associates. Robbins Geller invests an unusual amount of time and resources in professional development programs, including partner-associate mentoring, as well as outside seminars covering substantive areas of the law, legal techniques, and general skills such as time management and public speaking. Those hired will be continually challenged by some of the nation’s top litigators shaping the law in the area of securities litigation and shareholder rights, both at the Firm and on the other side of the bar.
Each year Robbins Geller offers a summer program that allows law students the opportunity for real-time work experience in one of the most highly respected complex litigation practices in the field. In fact, the Firm has been described in the media and by judges as gladiators in the courtroom and one of the most formidable securities law firms in the country. The Firm’s record of success involves some of the largest recoveries in history, including the largest securities class action recovery (Enron – $7.2 billion) and the largest securities class action recovery following a trial (Household International – $1.575 billion).
Robbins Geller’s summer associates engage in the same substantive work undertaken by the Firm’s junior associates, from assisting in motion practice and amending complaints to serving as second chair at depositions. Additionally, summer associates work with a variety of attorneys in different practice areas and are actively involved in the Firm’s litigation matters. The summer program provides flexible start and end dates for highly qualified 2Ls.
In addition to work opportunities, the summer program offers a variety of ways to connect socially with the Firm’s attorneys, ranging from lunches and happy hours to bowling and a day at the races.
Robbins Geller seeks professionals with superior skill sets, including paralegals, secretaries, forensic accountants, economists, damage analysts, investigators, database programmers and computer security experts. The Firm welcomes inquiries from candidates with outstanding credentials, and offers competitive compensation and benefits.
