GT paralegals help our attorneys deliver cost-effective legal services to meet our clients’ needs. Our more than 300 paralegals work side by side with our attorneys on all phases of cases and transactions.
We look for highly motivated candidates who have strong academic credentials, excellent communication skills and a determination to get the job done right. A commitment to teamwork and mutual respect is essential, as is an innovative, flexible approach. Our paralegals do not view themselves simply as employees. Instead, they possess an owner’s mentality and a commitment to meeting our clients’ needs.
We recruit paralegal talent at many levels and offer significant opportunities for career advancement. We provide training and mentoring to give our paralegals the tools they need to grow professionally. For new team members, we provide a two-day orientation session, as well as training specific to each practice group. We help them to get up to speed quickly on the firm’s culture, timekeeping system, expectations, firm resources and local practices and procedures.
Our Paralegal Training Sessions offer further opportunities to learn about a wide variety of topics and qualify for both internal learning requirements and CLE credit. In addition, paralegals are often invited to GT’s legal seminars through the Hoffman Professionalism Center.
