In a coincidence that has legal employment patterns stumped and hirers speculating, Jones Day announced the hiring of another batch of six Supreme Court Clerks after hiring its first set of six earlier for the 2011-2012 term.  The BLT called it Déjà vu that Jones Day hired two sets of six Supreme Court Clerks, though not going so far as to speculate whether by some calculation, the number six is now sexy in legal employment.

Be that as it may, once again, this is the biggest hire of Supreme Court Clerks made by a law firm, and six out of a class of thirty nine means the hiring had to be in conformity with current market norms. Going by prevailing hiring bonuses of Supreme Court clerks, it may mean that Jones Day dealt for at least $1.8 million, besides salaries and other benefits.


The firm announced in its release that the new lawyers would join the firm’s Issues & Appeals Practice as associates in the Chicago, Houston, New York, and Washington offices.

Beth Heifetz, the Firmwide Partner-in-Charge of judicial clerk recruiting said, “The competition for this small group of extraordinary young lawyers is always intense, but for the second year in a row, we seem to have attracted more than any other firm …”

She said the new associates “will have access to an extraordinary range of challenging litigation and not just within the District of Columbia.”

Tina Tabacchi, who heads the law firm’s worldwide recruiting efforts said, “We are thrilled that – for the second year in a row – six former clerks from the Supreme Court of the United States have chosen Jones Day as the firm at which to build their careers as lawyers.”

The new arrivals include Emily Kennedy, David Morrell, Ian Samuel, Kenton Skarin, Charlotte Taylor and Ryan Watson.
