Lateral Attorneys

Most people notice it as soon as they walk through our doors. The energy of entrepreneurship. The easy confidence of being surrounded by individuals who take the time and energy to support each other’s professional goals. That’s part of what makes us such a strong firm…not to mention a pleasant place to be every day.

At Fredrikson & Byron, we’re idea people. Action people.  We support our attorneys in their quest to implement unique ways of doing business, expand their practices, or serve their client bases with foresight and ingenuity. We’re continually growing, but that growth is smart: planned growth in response to client needs.

We know our associates and shareholders are more than their jobs.  They’re family members, parents, friends, unique individuals with diverse background and insights, experiencing milestones, triumphs and everyday concerns outside the scope of professional lives. Our lawyers work hard and we pay them well for that good work, but we also honor their sense of balance and work hard to help protect it.
