Ballard Spahr LLP was founded in 1886 by a group of lawyers committed to excellence in the practice of law. Today, we remain dedicated to that fundamental principle. We have grown to be one of the largest law firms in the country, with over 475 lawyers and twelve offices located throughout the mid-Atlantic corridor and the western United States. As a large, multi-practice, multi-regional law firm, we are able to combine a national scope of practice with strong local market knowledge to represent companies, individuals, and other entities in virtually every state and around the world. Ballard Spahr's support staff is the best in the business. We view our entire staff as integral to our ability to provide the highest quality of service to our clients. We recognize the need for balance between home and work life and respect the individuality and diversity among our staff. We encourage applications from candidates with a strong work ethic and an interest in professional and personal growth. We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package including medical, prescription and dental insurance for eligible employees, their dependents and qualified domestic partners. In addition, we provide life, short term and long term disability insurance, a 401(k) retirement plan with a generous employer contribution and match, medical spending and dependent care accounts, a pre-tax transportation program, a back up day care nearby, an employee assistance program with child/eldercare resources and a paid time off program.
