Scale LLP is inviting experienced attorneys to join its growing national practice.
Who We Are:
Called the “Wave of the Future” by Reuters, Scale LLP is a top-tier distributed law firm built by Silicon Valley founders and GCs to provide an alternative to a traditional private practice. By leveraging modern technology and a distributed structure, Scale provides attorneys with a more satisfying, flexible, lucrative practice and clients with a more connected, efficient legal service provider. Although Scale's attorneys work for a variety of clients across the country, we were founded as a boutique supporting early-stage, venture-backed companies and we continue to bring a tech-forward, disruptive ethos to everything we do.
How We Work:
Scale attorneys are not salaried; instead, Scale pays attorneys a percentage of the fees collected from their clients. Unlike in a traditional law firm setting, where attorneys typically receive a third of the value they create for the law firm, new Scale attorneys net 80% of fees collected from their clients, plus 20% of fees from other attorneys.
Who We're Seeking:
We are always looking for excellent attorneys of all stripes to join our firm, and in addition, have partnered with our affiliate, Scale Platform, to allow solo practitioners and boutiques a way to join our professional network while preserving their existing brand.
- Association as Counsel. We are willing to accept attorneys from senior in-house positions with no demonstrable book as counsel. Because the firm’s collections-based model only works for attorneys capable of developing client work, however, we require applicants to identify at least one anchor client and articulate a clear business development plan at association.
- Partnership. To be considered for a lateral partnership, we ask that applicants be prepared to demonstrate a significant transferrable book of originations. Attorneys who have less are welcome to apply for a position as counsel.
- Joining the Network. Qualifying attorneys who wish to retain their existing small firm structure and brand (or build a new one), but do so in a supported environment, may join our professional network via our affiliate, Scale Platform. Those applicants should apply via the Scale LLP job board (https://scalellp.applytojob.com/apply/) or directly at www.scaleplatform.com.
Applicants must have at least 7 years of experience at an AmLaw 100 law firm, or in-house with a reputable company, have graduated from a top-tier law school, or be able to demonstrate an excellent and sustained reputation in industry.
