If there is one word that we want our attorneys and professional staff to use when describing their careers at Goldman Ismail, it is this: rewarding. And we mean that in every sense of the word.

Rewarding because the effort and energy we invest in our work comes back in the form of winning results. Rewarding because the challenges we face on behalf of our clients utilize the full measure of our knowledge and talents. Rewarding because our compensation is commensurate with our highly-prized experience and litigation skills.

If this is the type of career that you’re looking for, we invite you to explore our site and email our Managing Partner, Sarah Reynolds, for more information. Goldman Ismail hires in its Chicago office only.

At Goldman Ismail, our goal is twofold: to achieve successful results for our clients and to provide our attorneys with ample opportunities to excel, sharpen their skills, and build rewarding careers.

Because our firm specializes in litigation, we face do-or-die challenges on a regular basis, often in mass tort and class action cases where the stakes are very high. These challenges are in themselves opportunities, wherein our attorneys can leverage their knowledge and experience to attain both personal and professional success.

We also offer attorneys the opportunity to collaborate with some of the brightest legal minds in the profession. Our lawyers work in cohesive teams on every aspect of a case. These efforts often lead to rewarding victories in the courtroom. But ask any Goldman Ismail attorney and he or she will tell you that the collaborative process, with its energy and productive exchange of ideas, is equally gratifying.

As a firm that handles cases of enormous size and complexity, we offer numerous opportunities for our lawyers to grow as professional litigators. Our lawyers possess an impressive amount of experience, and there is no limit to what they can accomplish at Goldman Ismail.


A diverse and inclusive workplace fosters a positive environment and an atmosphere of collegiality that inspires people to do their best work. That is the type of work environment we value at Goldman Ismail, and we are committed to providing for our lawyers and our staff.

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, pregnancy, age, or disability. We welcome a wide cross-section of candidates to enhance the diversity of our firm.


Individual physical and mental wellness is critical to our team reaching its full potential. Our well-being approach includes layered strategies and resources to support stress management, fitness and nutrition, time management, conflict resolution and other factors relevant to wellness.  GITB&B is a signatory of the ABA Well-being Pledge and continually seeks ways to honor that commitment and to support our team members.


Our attorneys are the driving force behind our success as a firm. Their razor-sharp intellects, superb litigation skills, and fierce dedication to our clients’ interests have enabled us to achieve an impressive record of courtroom victories.

As we continue to build our thriving practice, we will look to hire individuals with personal and professional attributes that complement those of our existing staff and that ensure we uphold the professional standards that have become our trademark.

We are selective, choosing lawyers who have established a notable track record of academic achievement and who want early case responsibilities and varied professional opportunities. Because of the complex, high profile nature of our caseload, each litigation team member must develop the experience and judgment needed to make vital contributions to the strategic development and execution of each case.

We are collaborative and value individuals who excel as part of a litigation team. We work together toward a common purpose, each attorney bringing to the table his or her own unique skill set and talents. We assemble teams in which our attorneys’ strengths complement one another, so we can draw on a range of skills in achieving our shared goal: a speedy and favorable resolution for our client.

We look for individuals with the drive and determination to win at trial, and who are highly motivated to succeed. Our focus in litigation requires that we be relentless in our efforts to achieve success in the courtroom. We know how much is riding on each case, and we can leave no stone unturned in our quest for victory.

If you believe your skills and experience are a good match for our firm, we welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
