These positions are non-partnership track positions, and therefore have no business development obligations. However, the Professional Attorney Track does provide multiple opportunities for career advancement for attorneys that have the ambition and skills to work on big-law matters.  Further, the Professional Attorney Track IDA role offers great flexibility, as the role is eligible for reduced-work or part-time work arrangements and 100% remote work arrangements (“IDA-Flex”).  Honigman is a premier business law Firm based in Michigan with an international practice.  Regularly honored as one of the Best and Brightest Places to Work and a Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press, we earned this recognition by hiring the best people and providing them with a great place to work and amazing employee benefits.  With more than 350 attorneys practicing in 60 different areas of concentration, Honigman provides timely and cost-effective counsel to prestigious clients in numerous industries.
