Mid-Level Associate

Mergers & Acquisitions


The M&A Group in Boston is seeking an outstanding mid-level lateral candidate with sophisticated M&A experience. High level of academic achievement and solid law firm experience is preferred.

Our Boston office has represented national and international clients in corporate and litigation matters of critical importance for nearly 41 years. Working in conjunction with attorneys from Skadden’s 22 offices worldwide, we provide clients with a diverse range of legal specialties. Our attorneys primarily represent clients in corporate, litigation, investment management, and government enforcement and health care regulation matters, as well as in pro bono cases. In 2019, our Boston office was named a Massachusetts Powerhouse by Law360, a recognition received by only four standout firms with a strong presence in the region.

From our beginnings as a startup, Skadden forged a reputation as a global leader in mergers and acquisitions by relying on innovation, intellect, teamwork and tenacity. In some ways, little has changed: By remaining steadfastly committed to the qualities underlying our early successes and adding to our collective experience over the decades, we are able to advise clients in almost any potential M&A scenario.

Associates who join Skadden laterally participate in an enhanced mentor program, which specifically focuses on the unique needs experienced attorneys face during professional transitions. 

These efforts, along with our professional development and other Skadden benefits, including flexible schedules with work from home options, underscores Skadden's long-standing commitment to investing in its people, culture and diversity. We also have an extensive pro bono program that allows attorneys to devote, and receive credit for, time for myriad causes that spark their interests and matches those interests with the legal needs in the community.
