As one of the nation’s premier law and consulting firms, Manatt attracts top talent from law schools across the nation, as well as experienced lawyers of distinction in their fields. Manatt supports and encourages the career growth of our attorneys and advisors, and we provide opportunities for professional development, challenging and interesting work, achievement and advancement.
We seek lawyers and other professionals of exceptional intellectual caliber and professional judgment who are dedicated to the highest quality in legal services and excellence. We place special emphasis on creativity, entrepreneurial energy, initiative, independence, innovation and leadership qualities. We recruit professionals of exceptional quality from diverse backgrounds to strengthen our practice, to deepen our knowledge, and to broaden our perspective.
Manatt combines the best of a boutique firm’s specialized and focused legal practice, and a large firm’s broad-based business acumen, full-service capabilities, reach and resources.
Manatt is committed to the training and development of our attorneys and advisors. We believe that it is important for a substantial amount of training to be gained through the conduct of actual client work, be it client billable, pro bono, or shadowing more senior attorneys in negotiations, depositions, hearings or other client-related activities, and performing case work that is not necessarily billed to the client. To demonstrate our commitment, we created an "Investment Account", a client-billable number for Associates and Advisors to record time spent on development, which will include shadowing time, time spent on projects that cannot be billed to clients, as well as time invested in training programs and educational seminars, up to specified caps.
At Manatt, our professionals have an opportunity to do rewarding work while developing their careers to full potential. With offices in Los Angeles, Orange County, Palo Alto, Sacramento and San Francisco, California; Albany and New York City, New York; and Washington, D.C., Manatt’s professionals offer unique talents and expertise in a range of top-tier specialized practices.
