Lateral Opportunities

Platform for Practice Growth

Continuing our long tradition of smart growth, we welcome inquiries from small firms, practice groups and individuals with robust practices to join our business platform. If you are looking to be part of a team of dynamic lawyers, and have built a profitable and sustainable law practice, one that can expand and thrive in a sophisticated business environment, we would like to hear from you.

The past six decades have been ones of strategic, deliberate and sustained growth for Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook & Cooper. Founded by three young attorneys in 1954, Lindabury has grown to become Union County’s largest law firm. From our offices in Westfield, Summit, Red Bank, New York and Philadelphia, we service clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Our sphere of practice is not limited solely to this region, however, as several of our practice groups are national in their scope and client base.

Lindabury is seeking to continue its growth through the addition of select individuals and/or groups of attorneys whose practices and personalities match both the services and culture of our firm. Lindabury’s culture is based on a shared desire for success, profitability and mutual respect. We are not dependent upon a handful of “major” clients or rainmakers, and we possess an even distribution of well-credentialed associates and partners. The firm has a broad, solid base of clients that enables it to withstand changes in individual practice areas in the legal services market. Lindabury offers the freedom to grow and succeed in a progressive, friendly environment that promotes a healthy work-life balance. Our firm is a business whose compensation system is transparent and rewarding of productivity.

Benefits to transitioning your practice to Lindabury include:

  • Dedicated Transition Team

    A team of Lindabury Shareholders and appropriate administrative staff from a cross section of the firm’s practice areas and offices will be responsible for working with you to ensure the smooth integration of your practice into Lindabury. The transition team will help guide and support your transition so you have access to the tools necessary to maintain and expand relationships where appropriate.

  • Strategic plan

    Since 2014 we have been actively engaged in implementing our firm-wide strategic plan. The firm has achieved the plan’s initial goals and we continue to work to meet milestones that will solidify Lindabury’s status as a preeminent mid-sized New Jersey law firm.

At Lindabury, we build client trust by consistently demonstrating our ability to deliver positive results through quality work, professional integrity and timely service. So important is trust to us that we have adopted the phrase “Because Trust Matters” as an expression of our firm’s values. It serves as both a pledge to our clients and an ever-present reminder to us that the practice of law is more than a business engagement: it is a privileged business partnership with honesty, fairness and ethical behavior at its very foundation.

Discreet inquiries from professionals seeking to expand their practice with a firm known for its uncompromising standards of excellence in the practice of law and client service are welcomed.
