The past two years have been among the busiest and most competitive in recent memory for legal hiring in Philadelphia and across the country. During this time, Hangley Aronchick hired at unprecedented levels in order to meet growing client needs and sustain our commitment to outstanding client service. Notwithstanding the intense market headwinds and challenges presented by the pandemic, Hangley Aronchick still remains “the choice of selective lateral movers,” as described by Law360.

Since 2020, we have welcomed the following outstanding attorneys to Hangley Aronchick from clerkships with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of Connecticut, and from elite global, national, and regional law firms: Kyle Heisner, Michael Masciandaro, Isabel Naveira Lopez, Alexandra Kajari, Elizabeth Dolce, Lily Huffman, Eitan Kagedan, Nicholas Bellos, Marianne Bradley, Zachary Winkler, Mathew Gomez, Gianni Mascioli, and Jackson Teague.

We have been flexible and creative in integrating our new colleagues into our firm and its culture.  Earlier in the pandemic, our welcome lunches and regular practice group meetings transitioned to Zoom, we hosted regular trivia nights for our entire firm and their families on Zoom (the bar was high thanks to our resident Jeopardy! champion, Tom Brown), we shared a virtual wine and cheese tasting, and enjoyed other special events.  We continue to gather and learn from each other virtually and in-person for firm meetings, lunches, happy hours, and events for non-profit organizations that our colleagues and the firm support.

We are proud to have maintained our focus on hiring exceptional and diverse individuals who value the firm’s emphasis on combining the highest intellectual and ethical standards with an uncompromising pursuit of excellence, efficiency, and entrepreneurship, along with a healthy sense of humor. We hope that you will have the opportunity to interact with some of them and agree.
