Founded more than 40 years ago, Baker Sterchi is a recognized leader in civil defense litigation. Our attorneys practice throughout the United States, serving national, regional and local companies and professionals in a variety of industries. We handle a broad range of cases, including product liability, commercial, employment and labor, financial services, environmental, insurance and personal injury.
Our attorneys and staff members enjoy a challenging work environment with a great deal of variety. While we work hard, we also take the time to share a laugh, inquire about one another’s family or talk current events and sports. We foster a culture of friendliness and teamwork. What does that mean? It means everyone is on a first name basis. It means no one need be afraid to ask for help on a big case. It means everyone matters.
In addition to attorneys, Baker Sterchi employs law clerks, litigation and nurse paralegals, medical analysts, technology professionals, accounting professionals, legal administrative assistants, records clerks, and other administrative professionals. When filling an open position, we look for highly motivated individuals with excellent analytical skills who like to be on a winning team.
Newly admitted attorneys and summer associates who join Baker Sterchi will have the enriching experience of being mentored by several attorneys in different areas of the law, giving them a taste of the firm’s many litigation practice areas and its clients.
