Careers

Walden Macht & Haran LLP is a boutique litigation firm in New York City that was launched in 2015 by former federal prosecutors.  WMH has built a thriving litigation, defense, and investigations practice by delivering creative, thoughtful, and diligent legal services to institutional and individual clients facing complex, high-stakes problems.  The Firm’s practice focuses on white collar defense and investigations, monitorships, corporate compliance advice, and complex civil disputes.  The Firm is committed to pro bono service, particularly in Good Government and civil rights matters.

Our lawyers regularly appear in the New York state and federal courts.  We represent, or have recently represented, clients in inquiries and enforcement actions brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, various U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York Attorney General’s Office, the Federal Reserve Board, FINRA, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, and the New York Department of Financial Services.  The Firm also regularly handles cross-border matters involving clients around the globe and across the United States.

WMH welcomes applications from talented attorneys with exemplary credentials.  Applicants should have 1–4 years of experience working in an elite litigation department or government office, preferably handling white collar, regulatory defense, investigations, or complex civil matters.  We especially value judicial clerkship experience.  Because the Firm regularly has matters with an international dimension, the Firm values business fluency in other languages and experience in international law issues (e.g., foreign data privacy rules, extradition, extraterritorial jurisdiction, MLATs, and foreign regulatory agencies).

WMH encourages and expects its associates to develop their skills and subject-matter expertise by taking significant responsibility for their matters, including in leadership and first-chair roles. Successful applicants will be highly-motivated and proven problem-solvers, who exhibit the highest level of personal integrity, team-work, and ethical practice.

Applications consisting of a cover letter, résumé, law school transcript, and original writing sample should be directed to recruiting@wmhlaw.com.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.  Walden Macht & Haran LLP is an equal opportunity employer.  The Firm values military experience and encourages veterans to apply.
