Education & Development
From classroom-style seminars (tailored to specific practices and industries) to core skills instruction and mentoring programs, we create meaningful opportunities for personal and professional development. By joining Balch, you’re kick-starting your career at a firm that is committed to giving you the tools you need to succeed.
Additionally, we encourage our attorneys and staff to participate in continuing legal education courses, pro bono cases, business development initiatives, time management training and more, which fuels your success by keeping you on the cutting edge of the legal industry.
While we are recognized for deep experience and counsel in regulated industries including energy and financial services, and our practices in business, environmental, government relations, healthcare, labor and employment and litigation, we are truly steeped in a client-first culture that results in approachable counselors devoted to delivering value to our clients’ business. Balch is defined by the commitment of our more than 350 attorneys and staff who truly want the best for their clients and colleagues.
Customize Your Career
“Flexibility” isn’t just an HR buzzword. It’s essential to achieving professional goals and maintaining a healthy work-life balance along the way. At Balch, we encourage you to design a career path that best suits your career aspirations, personal commitments and family priorities.
We understand a full-time schedule isn’t for everyone and that not all attorneys want to become law firm owners. By providing opportunities for alternative career paths, you can create an advancement track that empowers you to achieve your definition of success – both personally and professionally.

Industry-leading benefits include comprehensive medical, dental and vision plans, profit-sharing contributions, 401(k) deferrals with qualifying match, paid time off and paid holidays, life insurance, paid birth and adoption leave, and a back-up childcare and elder care program, to name a few.
Because we want you to grow your career with Balch – and maintain a healthy work-life balance – we also offer a variety of other perks: financial wellness seminars, onsite flu shots and health screenings, fitness programs, community service opportunities, CPR/AED training, social events, discounted gym memberships and more.
Our firm earns the respect and loyalty of clients by solving problems collaboratively with creative yet practical solutions that sharpen competitive advantages. At Balch, we work together to maintain an inclusive environment that encourages and promotes diversity.
