Gibbs Giden is committed to developing and promoting our associates from within the firm. We are also continually looking to strengthen and diversify our practice groups to better serve our clients. To that end, we are always interested in strong lateral attorneys (both associates and partners) to fulfill our commitment to better serve our clients. To that end, we regularly consider excellent lateral attorneys with experience in complementary practice areas.

Gibbs Giden prides itself on being lawyers who like practicing law, at the highest levels,  in a collegial environment.  Our attorneys are dedicated to the long-term success of the firm.  In fact, some of our partners and staff have been with the firm for their entire legal careers, spanning more than 25 years. We are very proud of our firm culture which is friendly, civil, teamwork oriented, and dedicated to client focused, cost-efficient service. We are supportive of our attorneys having a good quality of life, including a true work-life balance with plenty of time for family and outside interests and activities.
