Banking Mid-Level Associates

Posted Jul 05
Full Time
Chicago, Illinois

The Banking group in the Chicago office is looking for mid-level associates (i.e., class of 2021-2018), with general finance experience, including drafting and negotiating commitment papers, security agreements, credit agreements and other loan documents, UCC experience as well as general corporate experience. High level of academic achievement and solid law firm experience preferred.


In addition, associates who join Skadden laterally participate in an enhanced mentor program, which specifically focuses on the unique needs experienced attorneys face during professional transitions. 


These efforts, along with our professional development and other Skadden benefits, including a hybrid work model*, underscore Skadden’s long-standing commitment to investing in its people, culture and diversity. We also have an extensive pro bono program that allows attorneys to devote, and receive credit for, time for myriad causes that spark their interests and matches those interests with the legal needs in the community.

*Our current hybrid work model consists of working Monday through Thursday in the office. Attorneys also receive the opportunity to work remotely for specified periods throughout the year.
