Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Ballard Spahr is taking every measure to ensure the health and wellbeing of our lawyers and staff, our top priority. Effective March 16, we implemented remote-working arrangements across our offices, and we will continue to meet our clients’ needs. In large part, we have suspended recruitment activity. It will be resumed when we can return our focus to the addition of talent to our outstanding workforce. Please check back to our Career Page periodically. Be safe, and best of health to you and yours.

Choosing a place to build your career is no small decision. It's about fit – and it needs to be as good for you as it is for your firm.

Ballard Spahr is a national law firm with a client roster that includes some of the largest and most innovative companies in the nation. You'll play a role in challenging, sophisticated matters and work alongside many of the most talented, creative, and interesting people in the legal profession.

Our culture is one of collaboration, respect, and involvement. We value our commitment to increasing diversity in the legal profession and to supporting the communities where we live and work. Ballard Spahr has one of the highest percentages of female equity partners and we far exceed the national averages for diversity.

Together, our lawyers and staff donate more than 40,000 hours each year in pro bono legal services to people in need. In addition, each of our 15 offices has vibrant, established volunteer projects designed to translate that dedication into meaningful action that enhances our communities.

At Ballard Spahr, we help clients achieve success as they define it. Our guiding principle is to provide excellence in every representation. That means hiring the very best people at every career level – and providing them with meaningful opportunities to grow, succeed, and thrive.
