Welcome to the Careers section of Barnes & Thornburg LLP's website, where law students, experienced attorneys and people seeking staff positions can learn more about the firm and our employment opportunities. We believe that Barnes & Thornburg is a great place to work.

The values that attracted each of us to Barnes & Thornburg LLP — the quality of our lawyers, the quality of our practice, and our commitment to our clients, to innovation, and, most important, to the individual — are remarkably similar. These values have been the key to our success.

The key to our future is finding talented, motivated men and women who share our firm's values — professionals who want to join us in combining the challenges and satisfactions of a high-quality legal practice with opportunities for rewarding family life, and civic and other participation in livable, economically vibrant communities. The five key attributes identified as the core values of our firm are not the product of some marketing survey. They reflect our own consensus, based on sitting down and talking to one another about why we came to the firm, what we value most about it, and what we want to reinforce to make sure it remains. We do not always live up to our aspirations; we are neither perfect lawyers nor perfect human beings, and we make no claim that Barnes & Thornburg LLP is somehow a perfect law firm. But we do believe, and we believe with great conviction, that Barnes & Thornburg LLP is a very special place to practice law at the very highest level. We also think our firm provides a demanding, high-quality practice that challenges and trains our legal talents to the fullest, without sacrificing friends, family and outside interests
