Careers

What we are look­ing for

Our mis­sion is to assist our clients in han­dling game-chang­ing deals, ground­break­ing intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty mat­ters and bet-the-com­pa­ny lit­i­ga­tion across a wide array of dynam­ic indus­tries, while at the same time coun­selling start-ups and entre­pre­neurs poised to become the busi­ness lead­ers of the future. 

Our busi­ness is a peo­ple busi­ness. We are com­mit­ted to attract­ing and retain­ing like-mind­ed, entre­pre­neur­ial legal tal­ent, ded­i­cat­ed to serv­ing our clients and com­mit­ted to shap­ing the future and growth of Cresco.

We val­ue indi­vid­u­als who have achieved aca­d­e­m­ic excel­lence, and are able to thrive in a high-paced, entre­pre­neur­ial envi­ron­ment that empha­sizes strong inter­per­son­al skills, prac­ti­cal busi­ness judg­ment and teamwork.

"If there is one thing that defines a career within Cresco, it is the challenge and opportunity to work for demanding clients in a fast-paced environment and alongside highly qualified colleagues. I can imagine few better places to grow as both a lawyer and a person"

Steven Daems, Senior Associate Cresco
Pro­fes­sion­al development

We chal­lenge our asso­ciates with a myr­i­ad of oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges right from the start. We believe that the most valu­able train­ing comes from hands-on expe­ri­ence and encour­age our asso­ciates to assume chal­leng­ing roles, going well beyond the tra­di­tion­al role of legal advi­sor, in impor­tant trans­ac­tions and oth­er busi­ness mat­ters at a very ear­ly stage in their career.

At Cresco, we do not believe in mul­ti­lay­ered hier­ar­chies. The vast major­i­ty of our client teams con­sist of a part­ner and one or two asso­ciates. We believe such approach fos­ters a struc­tured yet flex­i­ble learn­ing envi­ron­ment, empha­siz­ing the devel­op­ment of excel­lent legal skills and real world prob­lem-solv­ing, while form­ing impor­tant long term inter­nal and exter­nal busi­ness relationships.

In addi­tion, reg­u­lar train­ing ses­sions through­out the year, pre­sent­ed by part­ners or out­side experts, hone the legal knowl­edge of our peo­ple on a con­tin­u­ous basis.

We believe that our approach pro­vides our peo­ple with a unique plat­form to devel­op skills as a trust­ed advi­sor to entre­pre­neurs and senior exec­u­tives, emerg­ing, growth and estab­lished com­pa­nies, and ven­ture cap­i­tal and pri­vate equi­ty investors.
