Our approach to hiring lawyers and staff is consistent with our goals as an organization.

Hire the Best

We are always looking to hire the best environmental and energy lawyers in the country. Our firm attracts the best work because we attract the best lawyers to do it. We are expanding through lateral hiring of experienced lawyers with a track record of success. We recruit junior lawyers largely through our summer program. We look for law school candidates with superior records who have shown a commitment to energy and/or environmental work. In hiring staff, we recruit innovators who can incorporate new technology and systems and are dedicated to supporting our attorneys and firm growth.

Look for Team Players

We look for lawyers who are competitive in their work, not in their workplace. There is more than enough competition in dealing with opposing counsel. We do not need it internally. A team-oriented work environment means sharing work, and allowing us to deliver the best advice and product to our clients at the lowest possible cost.

Do Interesting Work

We attract and retain lawyers by offering them the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging projects and cases in our field. Candidates should review the Representative Cases portion of our web site for a sampling of the work we do. Our lawyers practice at the leading edge of energy and environmental law. They keep current by producing our biweekly newsletter, Marten Law News, that reaches 35,000 subscribers in all 50 states and over 20 countries.

Promote Diversity

We gain our strength as people and professionals through inclusion. We look for talented people from different backgrounds that are committed to the same goals.
