Those who join Nutter as lateral partners enjoy leadership opportunities, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a strong platform to build business with clients nationally and internationally. In recent years, Nutter has experienced robust growth due in large part to the addition of numerous lateral partners who have delivered successful outcomes for Nutter’s clients.

Every day, we demonstrate our relentless focus on excellence and results-driven approach, and offering an attractive platform for top-flight lawyers with national practices.

We regularly conduct business in 48 out of 50 states, with one-third of our clients based outside of New England. We do not have offices scattered throughout the U.S. Instead, we have deliberately cultivated a network over many years of collaboration on projects in nearly all 50 states. Our network consists of excellent lawyers and we select the lawyer or firm that is the best fit to collaborate with us to achieve our clients’ objectives — not just someone in another office of our firm.

Being part of the Nutter team means sharing diverse life and career experiences, and an uncompromising commitment to excellence in everything we do. As a partnership, unlike a multi-office firm, we all know each other well and are therefore better poised to march forward with common objectives for our clients and for the future leaders of our firm. Those partners who join Nutter laterally experience a seamless transition of their practice along with robust professional support to continue to build and strengthen their practices.

If you are contemplating a lateral career move, and want to learn more about us and explore the possibility of joining Nutter, please reach out to Donna Yergeau, Director of Lateral Recruiting. We’d love to have a cup of coffee with you.

What do lateral partners have to say?

“The brand is well known, it’s powerful. That was something that was important for me when deciding where I wanted to end up. When I’m in a pitch, I don’t feel like I have to explain who Nutter is – people know. That’s huge. I don’t have to spend time selling the brand, it’s already sold.” -Shannon Zollo, Partner

"I thought Nutter was an entrepreneurial place. That's what I like because I'm entrepreneurial by nature. This is a highly collaborative place to work."

A lot of firms our size often have a dominant practice area, which makes it harder for clients to access the expertise they need across different disciplines. Our practice areas are equally strong across the firm. That's an advantage for Nutter attorneys and their clients. Chris Lindstrom, Partner

Nutter provides opportunities for leadership that may be harder to find at larger firms. Seth Berman, Partner

I have enjoyed being part of the successful hiring of over a dozen lateral partners across various practice groups that have integrated seamlessly into the firm. Dawn Curry, Partner

The culture transcends the physical barriers. Partners are encouraged to cross market and share their clients and contacts with other partners. Mark Leonardo, Partner
