At Briggs and Morgan, we understand that continuing our tradition of excellence depends on hiring, training and retaining a diverse group of talented and motivated people who share our passion for the law and serving clients. Since 1882, Briggs lawyers have defined our firm through initiative, leadership, and service in commercial and litigation areas.

As a leading provider of legal services in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest, our attorneys represent a broad range of businesses, governmental bodies, nonprofit organizations, and individuals in complex litigation and commercial matters. We rely on hiring bright, committed new lawyers to continue the success of our firm. Legal knowledge and a strong work ethic are necessary prerequisites for any lawyer. At Briggs, we find that possessing an engaging personality is equally important. We hire individuals with whom we want to work and with whom our clients and potential clients enjoy spending their time. Our attorneys help to make solving even the most challenging of legal tasks more palatable.  Clients report that they have fun with their Briggs teams. 

"At Briggs we assign our summer associates sophisticated legal projects based on the real needs of our attorneys and clients.   We strive to provide our summer associates with experiences that mirror those of new associates, so that each summer associate has the opportunity to cultivate meaningful working relationships and to develop a practical understanding of what life is like as a Briggs attorney."

-Britt Gilbertson, Shareholder and Recruiting Committee Co-Chair 

"My experience was what I thought it would be, but better."

-David Rubin, Summer Associate 2011

We do most of our hiring through our summer associate program. New Briggs lawyers are expected to take on a high level of responsibility. This is why we hire summer associates who are intelligent, motivated, mature and confident. We designed a summer associate program that gives law students a realistic view of what it is like to work as an associate at Briggs for the same reason.
