Join the Team

Joining Much Shelist means joining a team, not a firm. Our supportive, collegial culture is an ideal place to pursue your career goals, develop professionally and gain personal satisfaction from working with great clients and colleagues. If you are looking to grow and prosper in a firm that will value your contributions and provide the support you need to achieve your professional goals, look no further than Much Shelist.

At Much Shelist, we are deeply committed to attracting and retaining exceptional legal talent. We focus our recruitment efforts on lateral attorneys, whose experience, skills and knowledge allow us to earn the trust and confidence of our clients every day. Rather than hosting a summer program, we focus on associates who have gained experience at other law firms or institutions. This approach allows them to make meaningful contributions to client work from the onset. We deepen our commitment to professional excellence by providing various training, mentoring and professional development programs that support attorneys' career goals.

We also believe that excellence in legal practice goes hand-in-hand with excellence in all aspects of our lives. We want our attorneys to be well-rounded individuals who are able to enjoy their families and loved ones, as well as other interests outside the office—all without compromising our intense focus on serving clients.

Perhaps most compelling, our attorneys appreciate the fact that Much Shelist offers an environment of stability. We are fiercely independent and intend to stay that way. To ensure our future autonomy, we have successfully and smoothly transitioned firm leadership from our founders to a new generation.

Ours is a firm that values all members of our team, no matter their background, role or responsibilities. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about Much Shelist, our unique culture and the opportunities we offer.
