Starting Your Career

Whatever your role and team, you are part of the Godfrey & Kahn community from day one. Mentoring is an important part of our culture, so expect many opportunities to learn as you team up on challenging, high-profile work. Your career here won't be formulaic. It will be driven by your interests and the ownership you take of your work experience.

In addition, creativity is a core competency at the firm. Creativity helps us develop the best solutions for our clients and the most satisfying work and culture.


The Flexibility to Grow

Client-facing responsibilities early on? We believe in it.

People join Godfrey & Kahn to learn and grow. As a midsize firm, we can offer opportunities in different practice areas or responsibilities outside your current role. We’ll help you create your own path for growth and support you on your journey. We value teamwork, not competition, because it helps us create better solutions for our clients and a more satisfying work environment.

Our partners view team member development as an investment in the continued growth of the firm.


Development Opportunities Aligned with Your Interests

Godfrey & Kahn provides an avenue for growth through personal development, including continuing education courses, conferences, professional licenses and certifications, membership in professional associations, and tuition reimbursement.
