Associate Reviews

  • “The firm's culture is a very friendly environment established by the firm's collaborative mindset.”
  • “There were social events almost every week, usually with a happy hour with games of some sort for those who wanted to participate. The day-to-day atmosphere was very friendly and collaborative. Everyone is willing to answer a question someone has or help out to their best ability. The staff work very well with attorneys, it is very seamless.”
  • “I find the partners at Fitch to be very helpful and welcoming. The firm hosts a number of annual events for associates and attorneys generally which help with socializing. Generally, even outside of our firm-sponsored events, the associates frequently like to get together on their own. The staff is always very friendly and willing to help, and I have great relationships with all staff members I work alongside.”
  • “Interaction has been challenging throughout COVID; however, the firm has made efforts for us to get together over the internet. Interaction with partners is pleasant.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “As part of the firm's recruiting committee, I believe we are very competitive in getting the best possible candidates. We value all types of candidates, but especially look for intelligent individuals that would work well with our team, even if their grades may not reflect that. We value diversity very highly, and have had some great, receptive comments from interviewees about how they appreciate our dedication to diversity. We have an entire process in place and sample questions for people interviewing candidates including information about diversity, inclusion, and questions to avoid that could introduce unconscious bias. We get a large number of candidates from the University of Illinois and Chicago-Kent. We have established guidelines and forms throughout the interview process to ensure candidates are fairly considered and evaluated by a number of Fitch Even attorneys.”
  • “The firm has a good number of people from Chicago Kent (myself included); however, Chicago Kent focuses on IP. The firm is looking for a hard worker that is very good at communicating and very collaborative.”
  • “I believe the firm looks for experience, personality, and potential.”
