Careers @ ZEK Careers

We believe that ZEK represents an appealing work environment offering challenging legal practice in a firm where outside interests are encouraged (and believed to make you a better lawyer). We are always on the lookout for bright, energetic lawyers who enjoy the practice of law, seek a collegial professional situation and value the importance of a life inside and outside the office. ZEK has been and continues to be committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity. *

ZEK offers associates an excellent environment in which to develop and exercise their legal skills. Unlike other firms, where partners routinely delegate discrete tasks to associates, junior lawyers at ZEK receive significant responsibility for matters assigned to them. Working closely with the Firm’s partners, our associates are involved in all aspects of client representation. We strongly support firm-related career and practice development activities as well as outside professional activities.
