Our Mission

At Farrell Fritz, we recognize that in order to advance our firm’s mission, there is no more critical goal than attracting and retaining the highest quality people at all levels and in all areas of our practice.  To meet this goal, we are committed to providing all our employees with competitive compensation, the opportunity for growth, as well as a highly congenial and comfortable work environment.

The firm frequently seeks to fill positions for talented attorneys, paralegals and professional staff at all of our locations, which span from Albany to the East End of Long Island. We empower all our employees to apply their skills to the best of their ability; we value their opinions and their contributions, and we want them to feel very much “a part of the family.”

Farrell Fritz has established Diversity Scholarships at Hofstra Law and Touro Law Schools.  Scholarships are awarded annually by the law schools to a student from a minority community who demonstrates academic achievement and/or financial need.

Current Opening: Corporate Associate

We are looking for a Corporate Associate with 3-6 years of experience in general corporate and transactional matters, with an emphasis on private company mergers and acquisitions. Experience with financing transactions, joint venture arrangements and shareholder and operating agreements a plus. Excellent pay and benefits. Please contact Liz Knechtges at eknechtges@farrellfritz.com.


The depth of talent in each of our practice areas is a recognized strength of our firm. We therefore frequently seek to bring in experienced attorneys to join our “bench” in all of our practice and service areas: bankruptcy & restructuring, business divorce, commercial finance & banking, commercial litigation, construction, corporate, e-discovery, emerging companies & venture capital, environmental law, estate litigation, healthcare, labor & employment, land use & municipal law, New York State Regulatory & Government Relations, not for profit, real estate, tax, tax certiorari & condemnation, and trusts & estates.

First-Year Associates

We actively seek out recently graduated attorneys who share our commitment and values to join our firm. Unlike some firms of our size, we offer our junior associates the opportunity to work on substantial matters for major clients from day one. We feel it is this combination of “big firm” opportunity and a “small firm” friendly, collegial environment that distinguishes Farrell Fritz as an ideal place to launch a legal career.


Talented paralegals are an essential element of our team-oriented approach to client service. We seek paralegals with experience in each of our practice areas. We encourage them to contribute as a dynamic and valuable part of our team, and we offer them excellent compensation and opportunities for growth.

Professional Staff

As a large, diverse and growing regional law firm, Farrell Fritz is frequently in need of qualified individuals to fill administrative staff positions in our five offices. Staff members have the opportunity to continue their education within our offices, as the firm presents both CLE and professional development seminars for attorneys and professional staff. Farrell Fritz is an equal opportunity employer.
